Suzanne Phillips born to an Irish family in London in 1970 was an artist from the word go, hearing many words of encouragment as she grew from her grandmother who always found time in a busy day to sit and listen to the stories unfold behind every drawing, painting or sculpture put on her lap.
I was born in Japan but instantly felt that Cornwall is my spiritual home. The landscape, the sky, the weather and the people all combine to make Cornwall a place I want to be. Back home in Japan I work with natural stone and grind it down into powered to use as a paint material. I see the amazing granite of Cornwall as a perfect material to use in my art.
My painting is an expression of my love of the land here in West Penwith, a connection with the beauty and power of the landscape. The paintings are in oil paint on board or canvas, and are realistic & representational landscapes of West Cornwall, but not in an entirely photographic way; they are hyper-real, or more than real.
I am an artist and photographer based in Cornwall. Born in Manchester, I moved to the south westerly village of Porthleven at the age of 2 where I lived for 25 years. Growing up by the sea has had a huge influence on my life and artwork which I am so very grateful for.

Joanna Stevens grew up in west Cornwall and from an early age was passionate about art, often going out to sketch the animals on the family farm. She went on to study Illustration in Cornwall for three years and has perfected her own unique style that captures the liveliness and movement of the picturesque Cornish harbours and fishing villages. These images are all available as greeting cards and mounted prints.
I was born in Nottinghamshire on the borders of Sherwood Forest, part of a traditional farming family. After an “A” level in art, I progressed to an honours degree in Archaeology and Ancient History extensively utilising my interest in archaeological illustration and artefact drawing.
Capturing the essence and spirit of the subject is my overriding consideration and challenge when painting wildlife. Sometimes it is in illustrative details other times it will be in heavy impasto and when out sketching watercolour and ink is the preferred choice. I sketch on my tablet and even create sculptures if I feel that better represents the subject in front of me or within.
