New Paintings by Sally MacCabe
We've just taken delivery of six beautiful little mixed media paintings for our spring collection.
Sally lives in St Ives and works with a variety of materials, producing paintings, artists’ books, sculptures and collaged hangings. Her work is renowned for its subtle palette of greys and soft blues.
Many of her abstract paintings are an intuitive exploration of texture and applied ephemera where the final outcome is unknown.
New Paintings by Sarah Eddy
Born and raised in the South West, Sarah relocated to Brighton as a teenager where she embarked upon a career as a performer, which included touring around the world as one of the original founding performers of the international hit show Stomp.
After almost thirty years away from her beloved Cornwall, Sarah returned home to be with her family. Painting fast became a new creative outlet - her experimental use of oils and colour saw an emerging aesthetic that uniquely captures both the look and feel of the Cornish land and seascapes that she so adores.
New Paintings by Andrew Jago
Painting in the open air over many years has helped Andrew to develop the tonal subtleties of his colour palette; which aim to express the nuances of atmosphere and a sense of place. He uses loose and dynamic brushwork, conveying the immediacy and freshness of a sketch in a finished painting, applied with a combination of washes, often painting subjects that are in motion such as clouds and waves.
Andrew has been inspired by the painters of the Impressionist movement such as Monet, Turner, Sisley and Whistler and follows some of their principals, such as the emphasis on colour and light, rather than exact line and form.
New Paintings by Zoe James
Zoe grew up on the south coast of Cornwall. Her grandmother was a painter and inspired her from a young age to take an interest in art.
Many of Zoe's incredible paintings explore impermanence: transient moments on our shores, temporary spaces and migrations, capturing the diversity of beach life. Each piece examines crowds moving across the shorelines. Abstract patterns and textile qualities emerge from the beach paraphernalia, creating a painterly impression of our busy beaches.
New Paintings by Lucy Davies
Lucy's stunning new work depicts sections of the South West Coast Path overlooking St Austell Bay, which is not too far from us.
Lucy trained at St Martins and Brighton and has a BA (Hons) in graphic design, specialising in illustration. She paints full time, either at her studio in London or in North Cornwall where she spends her summers.
A keen walker, Lucy will always take her camera and sketchbook with her on trips to record new images so she has plenty of inspiration in the cold winter months when she’s tucked away in her studio.
New Paintings by Tracey Elphick
Look what's just flown into the gallery! This fabulous little oil painting is part of a sublime new collection by Tracey Elphick.
Tracey studied fine art at Falmouth Art College and went on to become Head of Art at Kingshill School. She now works as a full time professional artist in Cirencester.
"Over the past couple of years, garden birds have been a great source of interest as a subject for me. I like trying to capture something of their character and form in a minimal amount of loose but carefully placed brush strokes."
New Work by Lynn Muir
We've just added some new pieces to Lynn's page, including this gorgeous couple.
Lynn uses mainly driftwood which she collects from the local beaches and lets the shape and form of the wood suggest figurative forms to her and then works on it with machine saws, powered sander wheel and hand tools. She then ‘illustrates’ the shaped wood with paint and pen.
New Paintings by Michael Hill
Michael was born in Plymouth, 1951. There he studied Graphic Art and Design at the College of Art.
He has worked as a freelance illustrator, but now concentrates on painting full time. He is a tutor of watercolour painting in the Adult Education Service and does numerous workshops for various art societies.
