Diane Griffiths

Diane Griffiths

Contemporary British Artist based in Newquay. For me my art is an intensely personal process; I work in an impressionistic style which is ideally suited to the atmospheric and ever-changing Cornish landscape. Sold internationally and added to many private collections, I use a unique combination of acrylics, oils and enamels which is a way of painting which always surprises and challenges me.

Jane Palmer

Jane Palmer

My work is compiled, I build layer after layer, sometimes taking areas back to where I started, reworking or allowing the beginnings to be exposed. Layers are often thin and my tools are basic. Some papers and canvas may go through the press, some are hand pressed, all are painted and repainted.

Jay Hurst

Jay Hurst

I was born in 1971 in Lancashire and almost immediately began illustrating fantastic stories around the age of four. I think I later became an illustrator to avoid getting a proper job, which backfired disastrously when I discovered that not only is being an illustrator considered respectable in some quarters, its also bloody hard work. Thankfully despite winning awards my illustration career was short-lived enough allowing me to become a rather more disreputable ‘fine artist,’ quite painlessly.
