Dick Twin­ney

Ori­gin­ally from Devon, wild­life artist Dick Twin­ney has lived and worked in Corn­wall for some 40 years. His paint­ings, prints and gift­ware are avail­able world­wide; many of the books he has illus­trated are Amer­ican, but he still thinks of him­self as primar­ily a Cornish artist, and spends sev­eral hours each day walk­ing in and observing the coun­tryside around his home. He is author/​illustrator of From Hedgerow to High Tor: The Wild­life Diary of a Coun­try Artist, and his art­icles and paint­ings fea­ture reg­u­larly in West­coun­try news­pa­pers and magazines.

Two of Dick’s latest paint­ings, Dragon­fly and Bur­weed and Mal­lard Fam­ily and Dam­sel­flies – both from his Wild­life and Water­ways pro­ject – are shown below. Two short films by Mike Bry­ant – The Art of Dick Twin­ney and Inspired by Corn­wall – give an insight into Dick’s world.
