Dick Twinney has loved the Westcountry' s wildlife and countryside for as long as he can remember. Originally from Devon, he has now lived and worked in Cornwall for over 40 years. Although his paintings, prints, giftware and books have spread world-wide he still thinks of himself as a local artist   passionate about the Westcountry, especially Cornwall and Devon.

The magnificent scenery and the rich and varied wildlife from the high tors of  Dartmoor to the tip of Lands End all provide a constant source of inspiration and never ending material for Dick's highly detailed traditional artwork.

A real countryman, Dick always spends several hours each day in the 'field' walking with the family dogs over the moors, along the coast or in the local woods, observing wildlife in it's natural habitat, constantly on the look-out for that 'special' chance encounter that can be recreated onto canvas.
