Howard Milton studied painting under Ruskin Spear but it was Graphic Design which shaped his career. Milton came to international prominence during the 80s design boom, recognised for a lifetime’s contribution to British design in the Design Council’s Prince Philip award.
But he never stopped painting and the observational skills developed as a designer form the framework of his work, which is evident in his still life and landscape subjects.
Howard was elected as a member to the St Ives Society of Artists in 2020. He is currently exhibiting at the Osborn Studio Gallery, London and the Fosse Gallery, Gloucestershire.
Andrew captures light, atmosphere, and the very essence of his subject matter in paintings that manage to be simultaneously of the past, yet firmly in the present.
His work is celebratory with a dreamlike quality evoking memories of place and time. Andrew chooses simple and joyful subjects which move him; boats at rest in a harbour, a figure in the quiet of the studio or precious family moments.
Andrew quite simply, loves to paint what he loves, and considers it to be one of life’s great pleasures.
Nina studied at London Guildhall, graduating in 2001.
She works from her studio on the edge of the Roseland in Cornwall.
Her passion lies in mark making and colour, “I love to draw, whether that is with a charcoal stick, Alizarin Crimson oil paint, or scribing into a metal surface, inking it up and running it through an etching press”.
Lynne grew up in Cornwall and studied at Falmouth school of Art.
She is regularly in the county visiting her family near to the Roseland but lives and works in Cardiff where she studied for her degree in Fine Art.
She was elected a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy in 2017.
Lizzie Black is a landscape painter living in Mousehole, Cornwall. Rooted in a tradition of plein air painting, her work follows the changing patterns of the day, season and weather scape. I strive to capture transitory moments of light, colour, tide and time, and to communicate its beauty and magic on canvas.
Daughter of Bernard Evans: Lizzie started joining her father on painting excursions in and around Penwith at the age of 12. She spent hours watching her father paint and was encouraged to follow in his footsteps in the tradition of plein air painting.
Her formal background in painting was acquired at Bristol Polytechnic and Falmouth School of Art, she has exhibited extensively in Cornwall and the West Country.
Danny Holmes-Adams works ‘en plein air’ around the Roseland or in his studio in Devon.
