Kit JOHNS

Kit Johns works from a studio near Cadgwith on the Lizard peninsula. His work explores the Cornish landscape in all its wildness. His paintings of the Cornish coastline have a raw intensity, incorporating sand, stone and seawater, as well as flotsam and jetsam.

Johns is a tutor at Newlyn School of Art (2020).
