Possibly a pupil of the FORBES SCHOOL, of no fixed date; no further information currently available.
Cheltenham-born, this painter in watercolours was a member of the Ntional Society of Art Masters, indicating that he had been a teacher of art prior to coming to St Ives with his daughter, Phyllis Tiel JORDAN. For the STIAC records, their Cornish address was given as Flagstaff Cottage, Lamorna (where they may have been lodging with the Birch family for at least some period of time).
His work is first mentioned in St Ives in 1929, and in 1931 he was one of only twenty-two artists invited to represent STISA in their show at Plymouth. Jordan was a good friend of Samuel John Lamorna BIRCH, George BRADSHAW and Borlase SMART, and appears to have fitted well into the colony, but left the area after suffering a heart attack. By 1932 he was living in Newcastle, Staffordshire. Only his daughter is noticed in Johnson & Greutzner (British Artists 1880-1940).
Her address for her RA exhibit of 1928 records her as working at Darlington, although she applied for, and was elected to, STISA in June of 1930, when she had come with her father, Joseph Tiel JORDAN, to work in St Ives. During their stay, their address was listed as Flagstaff Cottage, Lamorna, indicating that they were staying with the Birch family at the time.
Like her father, she was one of the twenty-two artists invited to represent STISA in their show at Plymouth in 1931. The two departed St Ives in 1932 due to his ill health, though she continued her membership until 1938, by which time Phyllis was living in Leicester and ceased her STISA membership shortly thereafter.
Born at Ajmeer in India of British parents, Agnes Hope lived variously at Zennor and Paul in West Cornwall, in Paris and Angers in France, as well as London and Ashstead, Surrey in Britain. She studied at the Forbes School, and at NAG in 1903 she exhibited and sold Newlyn, and in 1908 A child's head and By the Sea.
However, from 1905 through 1930, she spent at least a half - if not more - of her time in France, exhibiting frequently in the Paris Salon where her listed works include 38 paintings of topics such as flowers, gardens, Notre Dame, Quimperle, Concarneau, and quay-side scenes. One of her woodcuts was contributed to Elizabeth FORBES's journal, The PAPER CHASE.
A British-born abstract artist working from Maker Heights on the Rame Peninsula in Cornwall's so-called 'forgotten corner'.
For one year he attended (1975-1976) the Cardiff College of Art, and then received his BA from Exeter College of Art, Devon in 1979. In 1980 he received the MA in Fine Arts (Painting) from Chelsea College of Art. For at least 30 years Joy has travelled widely and exhibited his work in museums and galleries all over the world, where his highly-regarded work is also represented in permanent collections.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, the artist was most active in California, painting marines, murals and florals, and landscapes. With his wife and daughter, Helen, he visited in St Ives during the 1911-20 period, but no further local information about him is available at this time.
