Cornish artist Brian Hoskin grew up working on his father’s boats in the fishing village of Looe. After studying at Falmouth and Exeter, Brian graduated with a degree in graphic design, moved to London and established himself as a successful freelance illustrator.

Now back in Cornwall, and living in the picturesque riverside village of St. Germans he divides his time between commercial illustration work and his own contemporary art and limited edition prints. He is currently undertaking a series of paintings featuring the harbours and ports in his local area which will also be available as signed limited edition giclee prints.

With more than 15 years experience in illustration he has produced work for a wide variety of uses including childrens books, greetings cards, puzzles, maps and packaging and clients have included the BBC, Hallmark, Royles and Ladybird Books.

Brian enjoys the creative opportunities afforded by digital image manipulation and and is keen to experiment further in this area to produce exciting and original art and greetings cards. When not in the studio Brian finds new inspiration surfing, rowing, and walking the many miles of coastal footpath around Cornwall.
