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.
Simon paints in an ‘Impressionistic’ painting technique in oils on canvas. Influences include several Impressionists and Post Impressionists, and subsequent artists such as Sargent and Brangwyn.
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.
Lesley is an en plein air artist. Following in the tradition of the Newlyn school she likes to paint out doors capturing the special Cornish light which is so unique to this part of Cornwall. Drawing from life is an important part of her work.
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.

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.

George ‘Griff’ Griffiths
At the age of 13 Griff won a scholarship to Wakefield School of Arts & Crafts using the same handheld instruments to make marks and the same pigments ground to make paint as had been used for centuries. This was the foundation for his work in the years to come.
