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.
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.

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.
Jessica Cudlip is a contemporary artist who works from her studio in the south west of Cornwall. Jessica’s own exploration of media, coupled with the study of Art and Photography at Truro College has allowed her to develop a unique approach to landscape depiction. In more recent times Jess has been exploring the use of textiles and torso/ pregnancy bump casting as an add-on to her more environment-inspired work. Jess accepts bump casting commissions.
Matthew Buchan is a local artist living and working in Grampound. Fangorn Studio is an old summerhouse converted for use as the artist’s workspace, nestled amongst the many trees and vegetable patches in the grounds of the home he shares with his muse, Victoria, two family members, one crazy cat and five chickens.
