Greetings contemporary art fans, and welcome to the contemporary art world of (relatively) new (to us, anyway) and terribly exciting landscape artist, Alan Furneaux.

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.

John Tregembo was born in padstow and grew up with the Atlantic ocean on his doorstep, from an early age he learnt to capture the world around him through his drawing and painting and has over the years developed a style all his own which is more to do with the feel of a place rather than actually a named place that can be recognized, he walks his Dogs most days along the camel estuary before starting work and on many an occasion will pick up on something that inspires a painting that is fresh in his memory.
