I studied graphic design for 4 years in the 1970’s and gained Associate Membership of the Society of Industrial Artists & Designers and of the Society of Typographical Designers. I went on to work in London for companies including IPC Magazines and Royle Print Ltd.
Christine Brunnock was raised in St Ives, Cornwall. She is based in St Ives today where she is constantly inspired by the Cornish landscape. Largely self-taught, her work is expressive and atmospheric, communicating a range of emotions that are reflected by the elements and environment. Christine's work has been collected internationally and she exhibits regularly. She was shortlisted for The Evening Standard Art Prize in London and is a member of The National Acrylic Painters' Association.
Greetings contemporary art fans, and welcome to the contemporary art world of (relatively) new (to us, anyway) and terribly exciting landscape artist, Alan Furneaux. A thoroughly modern artist who’s so good at what he does, a percentage of his unique designs have lent themselves to greetings card covers recently.
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.
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.
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.

Since childhood I have had a fascination with the sea. It has been the inspiration behind my artistic journey. As a self taught artist I have developed the skills best suited to attempt to capture this element. I work in oils , a medium I have found to both suit my personality and best represent the feeling and movement of the sea. Most of my paintings are inspired by walks along the shore when a momentary moment in time will spark the artistic vision.
Catherine paints human and animal figures. Her favourite subjects are beach scenes and adaptations from period drama. For many years Catherine painted miniature porcelain which was sold nationally. Catherine moved on to paint portraits in oil and has also developed her skills in acrylic and pastel. A major influence on her work has been the Newlyn School of Artists. Her work is sold as both originals and high quality Giclée prints. Prints can be purchased by individuals or retailers gallery wrapped for retail sale.
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 a so called ‘self-taught’ artist and tend to paint according to my mood. My paintings consist mainly of ‘little people’ having a good time. I had, as a child, many a day out with my parents and in a lot of my paintings I try and reflect the good times I had. Walks by the river, fun in the snow, days on the beach etc.
