Influenced by magic realism among numerous other things, I began to teach myself to paint before attending college in London. I create a kind of holistic patchwork of stories often through docufiction; the aim being to eventually develop a unique interpretation of life and the world.
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.
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.
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 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.

I have been painting and drawing all my life and have taken many courses over the years. Although originally concentrating on portraits, which I really enjoy and for which I still take commissions, love of landscape painting began with my move to Cornwall in 2002.
Born in 1947, Robin Armstrong has been painting Wildlife since he sold his first picture of a Prairie Falcon to the milkman at the age of 12. A move to the West Country in the early 1970’s saw his style move away from the more traditional to what Tom Quinn in his book “Angling in Art” described as “Romantic and vaguely impressionistic”. Frequent exhibitions in both London and in the West Country have brought his unique style to the attention of collectors from Europe, the United States and Canada.
Stephen Knowles originally hails from a small town called Heathfield, East Sussex, where after finishing school he attended Eastbourne college of art and design. Seizing the opportunity to get out of the south east of England and lured by a prospectus filled with images of palm trees and beaches, he moved to Falmouth in south west Cornwall to pursue a degree in illustration at the college of arts.
