David Muddyman is a graduate of Plymouth College of Art and continues to live and work in the city. Much of his work is inspired by the landscapes and seascapes around the Rame Peninsula in south-east Cornwall, Plymouth and west Devon. David’s work can regularly be seen at the Byre Gallery and a collection is always available online.
Sophie’s work is all about simplicity, harmony, and the power of colour in its ability to glow, clash or sing. Working mainly from life and from sketches, Sophie paints moments from her life: a collection of objects in the home, seasonal fruit and flowers, a morning spent on the beach or in a Cornish garden.
Siobhan’s work is created from memories, experience and family history. Subject matter and narrative are important to Siobhan: she likes to paint people, particularly children and animals, and is constantly scanning everyday images looking for the one that makes a great painting.
The ambiguity of spaces, the way planes appear and disappear, not defined but suggested by a small detail or a gesture of the paint, is what is at the heart of Cornwall based artist Nicola Mosley’s work.
A graduate in Fine Art from Falmouth College of Art, Jill continues to live and work in Cornwall. Jill paints the world around her, sometimes what she imagines, but her art is about the landscape of life in all its forms - its fleetingness, its poetry, its loneliness, and its reality. A collection of her work can always be seen at the Byre Gallery.
For Kerry, paint has always been the hero: the alchemy of mixing, pouring, mark making and rubbing away has made the paint itself, and the process of painting integral to her creative expression.
