Originally from Teignmouth in Devon, Dick Twinney has lived and worked from his Cornish Studio in St. Columb Major for nearly 40 years. Having a great passion and interest in our wildlife, coast and countryside from an early age, he has made it his goal in life to share this enthusiasm with others through his art and writing. 
His highly detailed realistic artwork has gained international recognition and over the years he has provided illustrations for over 25 books by some of the worlds leading publishers, including Collins, Longmans, Macmillan and Readers Digest. His wildlife art has also featured on many series of collectors plates, greetings cards, giftware and prints
Although his art has spread worldwide and his books published in different languages he prefers to be known as a local artist confining, by choice, his exhibitions and shows to Cornwall and the West Country. 
Refusing to follow any trends in art or turn to a more contemporary style of painting he continues to paint in the traditional style of the artists he grew up with, especially Archibald Thorburn and Charles Tunnicliffe whose work he has emulated and been inspired by since childhood.
"The Falconer's Favourite" - chromacolour on canvas
His work has featured in many newspapers and magazines including the Sunday Times, The International Artists Magazine, Country Life and here in Cornwall The Cornish Guardian, The West Briton and the North Cornwall Advertiser.
He now has a regular weekly spot, The Art of Dick Twinney in the Western Morning News daily newspaper.
Dick prints and publishes his own Giclee limited edition prints from his St. Columb Studio using the very latest technology and only genuine Epson pigmented inks on archival paper.
He has written and illustrated two books of his own, The Painted Seasons and From Hedgerow to High Tor and is now in the middle of a third which will be entitled Wildlife and Waterways. This will feature some of Cornwall and Devon's rivers  from source to sea and the wildlife to be found in and around them.
Dick has his own Wildlife Art Gallery at his Studio in St. Columb Major where he welcomes visitors and you can see and discuss all his latest artwork including work in progress, but please phone first.

Able to take up painting again he found that, in West Cornwall, he was living in exactly the right place to do so because it's an area whose landscape and culture are second to none in the UK.
Through paint on canvas and charcoal on paper Tom's has recently explored what he calls the lived-in landscape of Cornwall. Celebration of vibrant street festivals and other community events are another recurring theme.

Artist - David Fright

I was trained in graphic design and illustration at a studio in London's Fleet Street, qualifying for membership of the Chartered Society of Designers in 1974.  My long and successful career took me around Europe and to America designing for many high street names and other prestigious companies, picking up many design awards along the way.
"Time Flies" Original Oil on Canvas
Now retired I continue to satisfy my creative need by painting and drawing from life. I have used just about every medium there is over the years, but now have settled into the magic of oils. 
Painting in multiple layers of fine oil gives depth and realism to a painting and I find this very old method a delight to use.  It also draws on my many years experience in using watercolours by airbrush to give similar results; useful when painting for reproduction, but lacking the permanence of oil.
I exhibit with local art societies as well as on line. My paintings are now in private collections around the world.

Artist - Carl Conway

Art school trained in graphic design 'Epsom School of Art 1980-82 (OND Graphic communication), Cornwall College 1982-84 (HND Graphic Design).


My main interest lies in capturing landscapes and light in watercolour, acrylics and pastel. Recently my work is taking on more of an impressionist leaning in the form of large acrylics rather than my usual smaller scale watercolour painting.  I have had private commissions which now live in Canada, Wales and Scotland.

I worked for 21 years as a freelance graphic designer/art director, and have been in full-time employment for the last 6 years. I have incorporated my drawing/ painting skills within my job when it has been called for and has been a great asset to my skill set.
Watercolour & Ink Study
My passion and inspiration for painting is derived from places I visit regularly; landscapes of Southern England, South West England;  coastal scenery and dramatic skies, capturing landscapes and light in watercolour, acrylics and pastel.   

I try to capture the essence of a scene in an impressionist and personal way, working from sketches and photographs to create a finished painting. I am constantly striving to extend my skills in water-based mediums, sometimes combining watercolour  with pastels.

Artists - Elena Kourenkova

I am a Russian-born artist based in Glasgow, Scotland, since 1996. I am self-taught, although I had studied arts as part of my degree as an architect. All my subjects are loosely based on own experiences and observation of life-and are therefore recognasable, which often provokes a smile or a laugh (much desired effect). 
"Window Shopping" Original Oil on canvas
I try to reflect everyday events in a diffrent, lighter way; my subjects (although at times seemingly emotionally isolated, even when they are clustered in groups) do not take themselves too seriously, they just go about their business as if no-one is looking. 
"All Types & Conditions of Men" Original Oil on canvas
I have been painting professionally since 1999 and am represented by many established galleries throughout UK. There had been a number of articles concerning my work in national and local press and images had appeared in C4' Grand Designs.

Artists - Paul Chambers

Since the age of five I have always enjoyed drawing and painting. Before I retired in 2007, I worked as a computer systems programmer / graphic designer for a  company providing identification solutions to the apparel industry (labels to you and me).
"AN ORIGINAL ARTWORK" Painted with acrylics onto box canvas unframed
Since then I have been creating abstract and impressionistic artworks mainly for sale on-line. My studio is called "art4now" because that's what my artwork is  - its art for today at a sensible price so that it can be replaced regularly. Most of my paintings are in acrylic paint on canvas, and sometimes I add marble dust paste, paper, fabric, or anything else that comes to hand to give the work texture. 


"AN ORIGINAL ARTWORK" Painted with acrylics onto box canvas
Generally my abstract paintings have no titles. I just number them instead. Over the years my work has found its way into hotels, restaurants, receptions, show homes, as well as private homes in several European countries, America and Australia. Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork and you can see more of my work at exhibiting-artists.com

Artist - Ben Yate

I originally trained as an engineer and then went to drama school, all the while experimenting with different forms of art including painting, digital photo-editing, paper art and sculpture involving electronics. Whilst I was touring Europe with a theatre company, I developed my interest and skills in photography, and spent the following few years thinking about a new way to market my shots.
"A LIMITED EDITION ARTWORK"  Digital Prints on mixed media
In 2005 ‘Photo-Cubism’ is what I came up with – a technique of mounting each picture 3-dimensionally giving each piece a uniqueness otherwise lacking in the medium.  Each extruded picture becomes an abstract colour study, or an optical illusion, changing appearance as the viewer walks around or towards it. The grid pattern formed by the blocks draws the eye around the construction of the piece, engaging the viewer in an exploration of the subject.
"A LIMITED EDITION ARTWORK"  Digital Prints on pine blocks
I aim to challenge the art of photography and meld it with different media and art-forms. My work is modern and intricate, yet simple, vibrant and fun.

Artist - Louise Mcnaught

The main undercurrent to Louise's work is the journey of the Soul, and the spiritual messages we get through moments of clarity and dreams. In essence, her work is quite symbolic in nature and the subject matter tends to have a surrealist depiction to it, though the messages behind the pieces are often strong and very real.
Dreams are essentially in another dimension, another paradigm, another 'reality'. Louise was often labelled a 'dreamer' as child by teachers and by friends, often gazing out of the window in lessons or 'in her own world'. Dreams have become very important to her and in her work, as she has very vivid dreams of which she feels often symbolically hold important messages within them. She feels they can often express your inner truth, as dreams deal with suppressed emotions, our inner most fears and desires, that perhaps could not be dealt with at one time as they were too much, too 'real'.
These 'messages of the soul' or 'messages to the soul' are what inspires her, and paint is the medium which feels she can express herself and the messages most clearly and imaginatively. There is often bold us of colour within her work, as she wants her paintings and sculpture to grab the viewers attention, and carry the strength of the message though the canvas.
She believes art is a gift that should be shared with others, as it is not just a gift for the person who possesses it. It is another form of communication, that has always seemed beautiful and almost magical to her, the way it can transcend and move people. Her work may come across as surreal, dream-like and perhaps 'other worldly', but the reality of the message behind them is usually deep and poignant . To her, the Soul's journey though life is the most important subject one could deal with.
Louise currently lives and works in Kent and London.

Artist - Jonathan Shepherd

I was born in Derbyshire in 1961 and continue to live high up in Matlock Bath with glorious views over the surrounding countryside. After leaving school at 16 I served an apprenticeship as a plumber before joining my father in a picture framing business (PEAKLAND ARTS). It was during this time that my interest in painting was kindled and I taught myself to paint, initially in acrylics and watercolours but now mainly in oils. 
"Crummock Water, Cumbria" Original by Jonathon Shepherd
In 1991 I took over the framing business from my father and continue to run it to this day, although a lot more time is spent painting now. I have won several painting competitions including the Derbyshire Pro Loco Painting competition final which is a culmination of paintings done in various villages throughout Derbyshire which all have to be finished on the day and are then voted for by the public. 
"Fairy Glen" limited edition signed print by Jonathon Shepherd
After several exhibitions my work is in collections in the USA , Australia and Europe as well as the UK. I mainly paint landscapes of Derbyshire and other rural areas of the UK but of late has been experimenting with other subjects and painting styles.

Artist - Jill Tilsbury

Hi! I'm Jill, although most people call me Jilly - except when I'm in trouble - then it's Jillian!
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember.
"Nicci" original oil on canvas by Jill Tilsbury
My earliest memory of painting is quite a special one. It was my first day at school and my Dad had taken me as he was recovering from knee surgery and the walk was good exercise.
As we walked he was telling me that I would love school, meet new friends and learn new things; I'm not sure whether he was trying to give me comfort or himself.
We passed so many crying youngsters and distraught parents, when we got to the classroom I spied a table set out with paints, paper, brushes and water. I sat right down and started to paint and my Dad went home in tears. We both smile when we remember that day and 40 years on I'm still painting!
"Henry in his Basket" original pastels by Jill Tilsbury
I love painting any sort of animal although my favourite woud be the cat family from domestic to wild. My goal is realism and I love the challenge of recreating the detail.
