Paul & Taz are both Falmouth based artists working in two different mediums Paul is a woodturner on The Register of Professional Woodturners and a member of the Made in Cornwall scheme Working with mostly locally sourced native timbers to create one off pieces. Inspiration comes from seeing the grain in the timber and using it to its best effect, also from ancient and modern ceramics. Taz graduated from Falmouth college of Art in 1996 with a BA(hons) in Illustration Since leaving college she took a great interest in all aspects of ancient art, from cave paintings to ceramics, native masks to stone carvings. With a varied selection of painting styles on paper and canvas, she uses acrylics, gouache, natural pigment emulsions and mixed media.More information
