It is obvious from the choice of subject matter in his paintings that Minehead based artist Leo Davey has a real passion for his West Country home. Leo will re-visit the same spot time after time. â€œWeather, time of day and seasonal change means a particular location can be painted over and over again without feeling that youâ€™re repeating yourselfâ€.
Leo works from his studio/gallery on Mineheadâ€™s Friday St. (Quirke St.) where he sells his original paintings, prints and cards.
In recent years Leo has won the Evolver Prize and The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition amongst other awards. You can also view and buy Leoâ€™s work online at www.leodavey.com or pay a visit to his gallery. Open 11am to 4pm Tuesday to Saturday.
Caroline has been a professional artist for over 35 years. Living in the beautiful county of Somerset, she has direct access to fabulous landscapes and coastline. She particularly loves to paint the fields and trees around her home, and the wonderful coast of the west country has been a constant source of inspiration. Caroline loves to paint outdoors whenever possible, and then bring the paintings back to the studio to progress them. Sheâ€™s drawn particularly to wild and unspoilt places where she walks her dog daily, and where sheâ€™s spent many holidays on the beaches and coast path of Devon and Cornwall.
Over the last 20 years Caroline has exhibited in many leading galleries including the Royal West of England and the Mall galleries in London, she is always learning and experimenting with her work and aiming to capture the beauty of our environment.
