We are an independent gallery which opened its doors in March 2005 with the aim of representing a small group of predominantly West Country based artists. Our mission was to select the most talentedartists in each medium and genre both living and deceased. To that end we specialize in the work of the late Brixham based artist John Chancellor (1925-1984) who is regarded as probably the finest marine painter of his generation.

I am passionate about the need for wilderness and the plight of Britain's endangered animals. My animal sculptures and wall plaques focus primarily on threatened species in the UK, and celebrate thesuccess stories and are stylistically inspired by etchings, woodblock prints, early 20th century illustration and Art Deco stone carving. My earliest influences as a teenager were the Natural History, Archaeology and Anthropology museums of Cambridge, and they inspire me still.

By that time I had already been working successfully with paints on silk and, following my formal studies, my interests expanded across various media and subject matter. Many of my inspirations stemfrom my detailed macro photography of the natural world. I am fascinated by the wealth of colours and textures nature provides, having lived near Dartmoor for many years. Movement, texture and colour are the main elements I look for in my landscape painting.
My work is mainly created using mono type and lino cut printing. Recently I have experimented with multilayered lino prints, however I also enjoy working with different media to create collages. Ioften work from literary sources including fiction, non fiction and poetry. Some of my work was inspired by the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop and was exhibited at 'New Designers' 2012, in London.
