Country Matters 2020 - Our featured artists

We are just days away from publishing Country Matters 2020, Symonds & Sampson’s award-winning property and lifestyle magazine, and are particularly proud to feature the works of local artists within the magazine.

The striking ‘Running Hare, Mere Down’ by local artist James Lynch has been chosen for the magazine cover by Partner and editor of Country Matters Mark Lewis. James has achieved recognition for his landscape paintings of the West Country in which he sometimes includes wildlife. He uses the ancient medium of egg tempera, making his own paint from raw pigments, egg yolk and water. Egg tempera paintings have a haunting luminosity. James exhibits in London and Wiltshire and accepts commissions.

Featured within the magazine are stunning works from local artists, and we are very grateful to James, Marion Taylor, Annie Taylor, Vanessa Bowman, Kim Creswell and Rosanna Chittenden for kindly allowing us to use their work.
