You will find many five star reviews on the paintings and print pages around our gallery website and we have been sent many hundreds of happy comments from our clients and we are proud to publish a few of these for your to read here:

"To find one inspirational painter in a family is good fortune; to find two is unique. John Dyer and Jo Short are the only husband and wife team I can think of whose paintings I love in equal measure. Not in that 'quite nice' sort of way, but in a way that makes me want to buy them and hang them in my rooms. They have that rare quality of being able to transport me to those magical Cornish places of holiday dreams, magical light and brilliant flowers. They are optimistic without being misty-optic. To enjoy John and Jo's paintings you need imagination and spirit. That is all. The skills of these two remarkable painters will do the rest."
Alan Titchmarsh MBE

Work by John Dyer and Joanne Short shows a palpable passion for Cornwall and beyond. Their wonderful use of colour and unique styles are renowned in this part of the world. Look out for their work and make sure to visit their gallery if you're in the area.
Alison Waghorn - Cornwall Gallery Guide

"There is an innocence and freshness to John Dyer's art that follows a tradition in Cornwall that includes the work of Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, Fred Yates and Bryan Pearce."
Brian Stewart, Falmouth Art Gallery

"Everyone should see this place and John's paintings how they should be seen. Through beautiful Victorian windows with the gorgeous Cornwall sunshine shining through."

"It has arrived and is wonderful. The colours are so vibrant and beautiful. I am absolutely thrilled."

"It is wonderful to have the painting as it captures our memories of Falmouth so well, and now when we get homesick we can look at your painting and be transported back to Cornwall" 

"We're much more selective now but still never seem to leave a John Dyer exhibition empty handed - our first instincts were obviously correct!"

"Picture arrived safely and superbly packed! It already hangs on our wall and looks terrific."

"Thank you for peeling back the wraps, and letting us glimpse the sublime."

"The painting by Joanne Short makes me want to jump in the car and head west! Just absolutely superb!"

"First impressions- magnificent!!"

“Your fantastic paintings not only brought the apartment to life, but also put the energy of the Riviera indoors!”
Toyah Willcox

"The paintings of the Mount that John and Jo have done in the past are great: they really capture the lively, colourful spirit of the place. We're all really looking forward to working with them again, and seeing what they come up with this year!" 
National Trust - St Michael's Mount Island Manager

"I would love to own an original John Dyer painting - I have some limited edition prints - his paintings make me smile - it's Cornwall on a canvas!"
Debbie McCrory BBC Radio presenter

"A fabulous collection which perfectly epitomises Eden..."
Tim Smit - Founder of the Eden Project UK

"John's work makes you want to touch felty leaves, squeeze fat fruit, push your nose into flowers and breathe deeply. It's no surprise that his paintings are popular the world over; whether he is painting a vineyard in Provence, the Humid Tropics at Eden, or docks and beaches in his own native Cornwall, he touches a very human need - the innocent thirst for light, pattern and colour. We sense in John's paintings the sheer human thrill of being alive.."
Sue Hill Art Director of The Eden Project 


"It's always interesting to find out why an artist has painted a certain subject and what they're hoping to achieve. I also really like that you have some info about your framing. It plays such an important part in the overall scheme of the painting and yet it rarely ever gets mentioned. Your work is like Cornwall itself, you always come away from it feeling better about life."

"Fantastic picture! It arrived safely yesterday evening. Excellent delivery service and communication prior to delivery, thank you."

"I have always had immense respect for anyone who chooses to take time to interpret out world for us through painting, and feel especially privileged to have hosted such an inspired artist in our back garden!"
Kim Wilde - Rock Star

“Every day I look at and enjoy my two John Dyer paintings, although lately I look at them with an extra warmth - your kind and generous personality which is evident in all you do.”

"It has arrived and I love it as much as I thought I would! Thank you."

"WOW WOW WOW, AMAZING !!!!!"

"I'm sure you are well used to people eulogising over your work after all these years, but both yours and Joanne's works are absolutely fabulous in my house!"

"Once again, thank you so much for filling my lounge with joy."

"I absolutely adore John's paintings! I first heard of him a year or two ago when I bought a greetings card of his and saw details of his website on the back. Now I am hooked! His pictures are really addictive - I now have nearly 30 - mainly prints and a few posters. Every piece is fantastic - such gorgeous colours and such attention to detail. If I had more funds I would buy some of John's original paintings but his prints and posters are extremely well produced and give me great pleasure. They have turned my small flat into a super flat! I cannot recommend John's work any more highly."
