Dick Twinney

Born in 1943, Dick Twinney has loved the countryside and its inhabitants for as long as he can remember. Growing up in the South Devon town Teignmouth played a big part in his deep appreciation of the natural world. It is an area of outstanding wild beauty, a tidal river with a huge variety of wading and sea birds, fields and woodlands stretching to the moors and home to many popular mammals from tiny harvest mice to otters.
Having a natural ability to draw Dick was soon combining his two loves of art and natural history something he is still doing, but now for a living, with the same enthusiasm and passion to this day in Cornwall.

Dick Twinney is a completely self taught artist who has had the ability to draw and paint from an early age. He became a professional artist in 1973 specialising in wildlife and countryside subjects after serving 14 year in the Royal Air Force. Dick has written or contributed illustrations to over 25 books by some of the world's leading publishers including his own books 'The Painted Seasons' and 'From Hedgerow to High Tor', The Wildlife Diary of a Country Artist. He is at present working on another book 'Wildlife and Waterways' a long term project featuring the Westcountry's rivers, lakes, estuaries and waterways and the wildlife to be found there. . Over the years Dick's paintings have been used by most of the UKs greetings card publishers including, Medici, Royles and J Arthur Dixon. Dicks paintings can be seen every thursday in the Western Morning News in the feature 'The Art of Dick Twinney'
