Born on 31 July, 1848, Penzance, Lavin was his mother's maiden name. In 1879 his address was in Newlyn, and he began to send paintings in to the RCPS: Newlyn - fresh breeze (1879), Trawlers, Gwavas Lake (1884) and Penzance (1888).
At NAG in 1897 he exhibited and sold Mackerel Season, Mts Bay. Within the sales records, Pascoe's name is often found as a purchaser of works from the earliest exhibitions. On 28 September, 1908 the artist died, age 60, at Mylor near Falmouth (GRO).
An earlier William Pascoe, from Plymouth, is listed by Graves as painting landscapes between 1842-44 at RA, SS, and BI, however the Pascoe referred to here is mentioned by Green as a contemporary of the Welsh student Carey MORRIS, and was a pupil at the FORBES SCHOOL c1905.
Pascoe lived at 6 Wellington Terrace, Penzance. He exhibited and sold The Embroiderer at NAG in July 1906. In 1907 C Lewis Hind published Days in Cornwall (Methuen & Co) and William Pascoe provided sixteen coloured illustrations for the book with such subjects as Lanyon Quoit, Newlyn Slip, St Michael's Mount, A Night View of the Island, St Ives and Trencrom Hill. Whether or not these illustrations were reproductions of paintings for exhibition, is not known. Photographs were also provided by a number of national and locally based photographers such as Herbert LANYON (St Ives), GIBSON (Penzance) and Francis FRITH amongst others.
In the permanent collection at Falmouth Art Gallery is Portrait of a Man, attributed to William Pascoe as active 1905-1912.
Listed in the 1841 Census for Falmouth as a 45 year old Artist, not born in the County and living in Killigrew Street.
One of his pupils in London was Terry FROST, whom he advised against studying art formally - but to go and study shapes and paintings in the national galleries. He visited St Ives in 1950, and following this 'he flirted with abstracted appearances again.' (P Fuller 1988).
Lisa became a full-time painter in 2007. Her paintings follow the spirit of the 1930s and Japanese block printing. Her images contrast the beauty of unkempt nature with domestic buildings, churches and old mine buildings. Shapes and contours are used to create a strong composition, coupled with rich colours, shadow and light.
The artist works from one of six studios at Pydar Gallery & Studios in Truro.
The daughter of a solicitor, Emily Paterson was born in Edinburgh in 1855 and studied at the Edinburgh College of Art, as well as in Paris.

Her favoured subjects were landscapes, architecture and botany. She was elected member of the Royal Scottish Watercolour Society, Scottish Artists' Society and the Society of Women Artists. Emily died in London on the 23rd July, 1934 - a memorial exhibition was held at Walker's Gallery, London later the same year. The painting St Ives (undated) was sold at Christies, London, South Kensington on 27 January 1999.
