RICHARD THORN SWAc Richard Thorn Watercolour and mixed media artist. SWAc

Lots of colour and bags of feeling in my work. I get a lot of associations with the landscape of devon and the coast which I attempt to put into my paintings. Drawing was my first love. From an early age I did nothing but draw. I think it was a great start to my career as a painter.
I am an accomplished Jazz musician(guitarist) and songwriter.
(I lead a quartet MA√ĎANA playing latin and world rhythms. The band plays original material.)

My work can be seen at the following galleries: Chelston gallery.(torquay) Davidson fine art. (totnes) Fowey River Gallery. (Fowey Cornwall) John Davies Gallery. (moreton-in-marss Glos) Bourne Gallery. Reigate Surrey) Royall Gallery. ( Tunbridge wells) Tregony Gallery.(Tregony Cornwall) Great atlantic mapworks gallery (Falmouth and St Just. i also have a growing collection of limited edition Prints.
