Dick Twinney ~ Wildlife and Countryside Artist
Originally from Teignmouth Dick has worked from his Cornish Studio in St. Columb Major for over 44 years.
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 and limited edition fine art prints.
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 and artwork to Cornwall and can currently be found weekly in the Newquay Voice and monthly in the North and Mid Cornwall Advertisers and 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 and still available from here or his St. Columb Major Studio.
