Diane Griffiths

Diane Griffiths

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.

Greetings contemporary art fans, and welcome to the contemporary art world of (relatively) new (to us, anyway) and terribly exciting landscape artist, Alan Furneaux. A thoroughly modern artist who’s so good at what he does, a percentage of his unique designs have lent themselves to greetings card covers recently.

Jay Hurst

Jay Hurst

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.

Valerie Mainwaring

Valerie Mainwaring

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.
