Painting & fine art prints
Born in Berwick upon Tweed, Robert W. Turnbull was taught by Eric Huntley, RSA, before studying at Manchester College of Art.
A period of painting and study in Italy and Switzerland was followed by return to the North-East where, through exhibitions at many galleries and an individual style in capturing texture and atmosphere, his reputation as a leading Northern artist was established.
His many commissions include work presented to the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret and the Royal Shakespeare Company. He was a prize winner at the John Laing Art Competition in 1992, 1993 and 1994
Painting, fine art prints & Wildlife Sculpture
Half-Australian and half-Welsh, Zana was born in Cyprus and brought up in Australia, the Philippines, Brazil and Ghana, which has influenced her view of art and life in general.
She has worked and traveled in the Far East and Europe and worked for David Bellamy, Conservation international and RSPB.
Having focused on painting landscapes and animals in oil, pastel and watercolour, she now concentrates on capturing wildlife in sculpture. She has exhibited at the Mall Galleries London, The Drokje in the Netherlands and numerous galleries in the North of England.
Bronze & ceramic sculpture
Barry studied sculpture at Leicester and, intrigued by animals, their character and movement, joined the British Natural History Museum in London, where he became Head of Model-making and Taxidermy.
Barry has exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art, Yorkshire Museum and in galleries throughout Britain. In 2008 he was awarded the 1st prize for Sculpture at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Show at the Mall Galleries, London for his “Running Warthog” and he is a regular exhibitor at the Mall Galleries in London, at both the David Shepherd Wildlife Awards and the Society of Wildlife Artists annual exhibition.
His skill in anatomical sculpting and his understanding of animal movement and behavior led to his involvement in film and T.V. work, which included:
“Walking with Dinosaurs”
Flintstones & Flintstones II
Never Ending Story II
The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
Animal Farm TV Film
