New Paintings by Andrew Jago
Andrew grew up in St Mabyn, a small village in North Cornwall, nestled neatly in between the moors and the coast. He loved to sketch and explore woodlands, the parish valleys and rugged coastline around Polzeath and Camel Estuary.
Painting in the open air over many years has helped him 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
New Paintings by Lucy Almey Bird
Two more exquisite paintings are now available!
Lucy grew up in rural Somerset. She was always encouraged to draw and paint from an early age and was taken on regular trips to galleries and museums, which ignited her passion for art.
She paints mostly in acrylics and takes inspiration from everyday life - especially her three daughters. Domestic scenes feature regularly in her paintings, depicting a romanticised, gentler look at life.
New Paintings by Lucy Davies
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.
The beautiful and sometimes wild coastal scenery is an inspiration - the dramatic sea, rugged cliffs and stunning, golden beaches all inform her work and provide the reference for her colourful, mixed media paintings.
Lucy was shortlisted to appear in the very first series of Sky’s Landscape Artist of the Year in 2015.
New Paintings by Paula Sharples
It's always a delight to get new paintings from Paula.
She works on gesso prepared board with acrylics, ink and graphite in layers and uses a combination of still life with landscape background. Her use of colour and pattern is evidence of her past in textile and ceramic design.
The coast is a constant inspiration and Cornwall and Devon feature heavily in her paintings.
New Paintings by Lesley Birch
Inspired by wild and remote places, Lesley's paintings are notable for their colour, atmosphere and expressive marks. She aims for semi-abstraction, but still retains that recognisable feeling of place.
"I love moody skies and windy weather - and I always take my sketchbook with me" she says.
Lesley was a winner of The Artist Magazine Award in 2016. She paints from both her home and city studios in York.
New Paintings by Lucy Young
Don't miss Lucy's wonderful new collection!
Her paintings are inspired by the joy of coastal living with all its treasures from its bobbing boats to its cheeky seagulls. She loves to capture those special moments we all cherish when by the seaside like eating chips or ice cream, building sandcastles or dipping your toes in the surf.
"I want to uplift you with my naive style and if I can bring a smile to your face then I’m happy."
