Judy Hempstead (1939 - 2020)
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the death of our dear friend Judy Hempstead.
She passed away peacefully just before Christmas and will be sorely missed.
Judy was a wonderful artist and it has been such a pleasure selling her paintings over the years.
New Paintings by Lucy Almey Bird
Lucy's paintings have been incredibly popular this year and it's not hard to see why! Their warmth and charm makes them almost impossible to resist.
Fortunately, we've a few more to share with you before the year comes to an end.
Painting mostly in acrylics, Lucy 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 Amanda Hoskin
Amanda has given us some gorgeous new original paintings to lift our spirits.
Locations include, Charlestown, Bodinnick, Polruan, Lerryn and the Bodmin Moor (pictured).
Amanda has been an exhibitor here for over two decades and we never cease to be amazed by her incredible work.
And don't forget that we also stock her beautiful limited edition prints and books!
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. She travels to Ireland, Wales, Scotland, the Yorkshire Dales and Cornwall in search of inspiration.
"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 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.
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 Jo March
Some outstanding new work from Jo has arrived!
Jo was born in 1962, the daughter of a farmer and a district nurse and grew up in the small moorland village of Darite, South East Cornwall.
Her paintings are remarkably individual in outlook and style, drawing inspiration from the surrounding countryside and the people that she met whilst accompanying her parents on their daily rounds.
New Paintings by Michael Hill
Michael has delivered some wonderful, semi-abstract paintings for our Winter show.
Born in 1951, Michael 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.
Michael is a member of the Plymouth Society of Artists and is the President of the Plymouth Watercolour Society.
