The Artists


North55 is an artist-led, Celtic family collaborative over two generations and with 40 years experience in the world of art.

All art works are produced by ourselves in our studio by the sea in Cornwall. As a family we have strong environmental and humanitarian links and values, which is often reflected within the narrative of our works.

'the job of any artist is to always deepen the mystery'
