David Morgan – Born 1947- Southampton, England.

David Morgan trained at the Southampton College of Art and Design. Upon completion of his studies, he decided to travel extensively through Western Europe, to gain artistic experience. He lived in Paris for some time, where he gained the confidence and ability which makes his work quite outstanding amongst his contemporaries.

Only a few artists can emulate his gift for distance, detail and lighting in his superb landscapes off rural England. His almost photographic quality manages to take you into the painting, as though you are participating in the view, such is the realism.

So compeling is his work that his reputation has extented far beyond his Hampshire roots. Whether it’s a view of Exmoor, Yorkshire or the Hampshire Downs, one can easily recognise the locality by the accuracy and sympathetic interpretation in his work.

Two decades of successful painting have resulted in many highly-praised exhibitions in some of the country’s most prestigious

Richard Telford – Born 1950 – Dorchester, Dorset.

Richard Telford was born in Dorchester and spent his childhood in this most picturesque part of England. He developed a keen interest in painting professionally from an early age when his talent was recognized by a local gallery.

The influence of many West Country artists and the surroundings of his youth have provoked his unique style, with his use of soft bright colours evoking a serene atmosphere in his landscapes, reminiscent of the Wessex artist Thomas Hardy.

Edward Hersey – Born 1948 Surrey, England

Throughout history we have admired and coveted the fine work of our world-renowned landscape and countryside artists, who have accurately recorded the many and varied subjects of our beautiful heritage.

Edward Hersey, a most gifted artist, has in the last decade, established  himself as the foremost artist in his field. His meticulous attention to every detail, and his rare ability to captivate his audience with his fabulous record of mood and lighting, elevate him into a league of the select few.

Hersey’s formative years were spent living in southern England, with its rich and varied landscape and abundant farm buildings, which has inspired him throughout his artistic career.

New and interesting subjects encourage him to travel extensively throughout the U.K. to record the style and variation in farm buildings, the source of much of his work.

Demand by collectors for Hersey’s work is such, that there is invariably a long list of commissions outstanding by the leading galleries who handle his work.
