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.
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.
An artist to inspire artists, Steve Slimm’s visionary work over the past 40 years has gained him the reputation, in Cornwall and the UK, of a master of expressionist landscape painting. Since 2009 his work has been featured in national UK art foundation syllabuses for its quality of light.
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.
Charlotte was born in the 1970s in Cornwall, to a truly Cornish family, with her roots in the County traceable back to the mid 1600’s. Always creative from a young age, she spent her childhood learning about nature, watching and exploring local freshwater rivers, woodland, moorland and coastal environments.

Liz Toole now lives and works in Brighton after spending the majority of her time between Shropshire and Cornwall. After graduating from an H.N.D. in ceramics at Cumbria College of Art and Design she then went into the second year of a ceramic degree at Cardiff Institute of Art and Design.
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.
