In this video we meet David at Porthcothan to discover more about what inspires and drives him, as well sharing his passion for capturing a moment in time.
Lucy trained at St Martins and Brighton and has a BA ( Hons) in graphic design specialising in illustration. Lucy has always enjoyed painting but it was not until her children finally flew the nest that she found time to fully concentrate on her passion and now paints full time from her studio at home in north London.
In 2010 she began her move into the field of fine art by producing a series of paintings inspired by her love of the landscape and coastal areas of Britain.

She enjoys experimenting with collage to create a variety of textures, and uses acrylic paints for their versatility and depth of colour.
