Cornish artist Glyn Macey will be exhibiting a major new collection of paintings inspired by his camper van travels around Britain.

Known for stirring land and seascapes, Glyn's work is distinctive.

"The collection demonstrates Glyn's famously strong, striking style of work," said a spokesman for Rostra and Rooskmore Galleries, in Bath, where the artwork is being exhibited.

Glyn, was born in Newlyn, and attended the Falmouth School of Art, where he studied graphic design.

He has previously been involved in a year long project with the National Trust, raising the charity £22,000 through the sale of his paintings. He also completed an eight month coastal journey to raise money for the RNLI in 2009.

For his most recent exhibition, Glyn travelled round the country in a camper van capturing the most inspiring elements of the British landscape.

But Glyn insists that his heart still lies in very much in Cornwall.

"However much I love travelling and working in other parts of the country, Cornwall and especially Newlyn is still my home and first love," he said.

Glyn will be at the opening night preview of the exhibition, on February 25, 5.30pm – 7.30pm at Rostra and Rooksmoor Galleries, Bath.
