The Artist and his helpers Maxwell and Della

Originally from Teignmouth, Devon, Dick has worked from his Cornish Studio in St. Columb Major for 50 years in 2020. His highly realistic traditional artwork has gained international recognition and over the years he has provided illustrations for over 25 books by some of the worlds leading publishers. His wildlife art has featured on many series of collectors plates. greetings cards, giftware, limited edition fine art prints and his original paintings are in collections worldwide.
Refusing to follow any trends in art or turn to a more contemporary way of painting he continues to paint in the traditional style of the artists he grew up with especially Archibald Thorburn and Charles Tunnicliffe whose work he has emulated and been inspired by since childhood.
Dicks great passion and goal in life is to share the flora and fauna of Cornwall''s coast and countryside, from the smallest insect to the largest mammal through his paintings and writing.
His work has featured in many newspapers and magazines nationally but now by choice Dick restricts his articles, shows and artwork to Cornwall and can currently be found weekly in the Newquay and St. Austell Voice and monthly in the Cornwall Today magazine.
He has written and illustrated two books of his own, The Painted Seasons and From Hedgerow to High Tor, both books featuring Cornwall''s natural world.

Latest Artwork
Just finished a very special original painting I have wanted to do for some time. Inspired by my friend Phil Trebilcock's sunrise photos on Facebook as he sets out for a (very) early morning fishing trip to check his pots.
The painting features his fishing boat 'The Loyal Partner' and the old Newquay RNLI Lifeboat House and slipway.
