Bridget & Amber Leaman

Mother and daughter duo Bridget and Amber Leaman live and paint on a clifftop on the Lizard Peninsula at the tip of Cornwall and it is this wild landscape which infuses both artists’ work.

There is a clear harmony between these two artists’ paintings, both showing us the seas and skies in a distinctive way; large canvasses which are colourful, structured and bold, just as imporessive as the dramatic shores of Cornwall.

Sofia Petropoulou

These elegant new pieces from Greek painter Sofia Petropolou gently contrast the delicate tones and firm application of paint. Drawing from both the natural elements and the urban landscapes Petropoulou uses these sources yet does not let them dictate the composition, but leaves us with paintings of lyrical beauty.

Maiju Tirri At the opening of Finnish artist’s Maiju Tirri’s recent exhibition with us the Finnish ambassador tried to capture in words the strong presence of nature in her work . This is not unusual for painters in the very North of Europe. The artist captures the constant movement and flow of water and wind, balancing with the stable elements of stone and rock. This is powerful, emotional art and cannot fail to captivate. Maiju exhibits regularly in her native Finland, London and in her current home in Spain, with international public and private collectors.
