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.
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 2018 in London and won the ING Discerning Eye Purchase Prize 2023.
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.
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.
Vincent Basham is a self-taught artist who specialises in seascapes, he was born in Maldon, Essex in 1956 and educated at Thurstable School, Tiptree where his love for painting first developed. He has exhibited his work in prestigious galleries in London, Essex, Norfolk, Devon and Cornwall.

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.
Jennifer Ridgeley was born and educated in the borough of Richmond on Thames. Moving to Hertfordshire in her twenties, she gained her teaching degree there in the late 1960’s, taking Art as her main subject. Her work at that time was much influenced by Morris Louis (1912-62.) and his “veils”.
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.
