"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

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

"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

"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 

"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

"John Dyer is one of Britain's leading and best known contemporary painters. Born in 1968 his work embraces colour and the 'Song of Life'" 
The National Trust

"Full of vibrant colour, John Dyer's work documents the landscape conveying optimism, fun, joy and happiness. From sea spray and jazz bands to comets and crickets, everything becomes an inspiration.”
BBC News Online

St Michael’s Mount Phone Case

Minack Memories

I have loved John Dyers work for many years. I have some prints at home and at work.
Gorgeous, vibrant colours. Reminds me of many happy evenings at the Minack when growing up in Cornwall. Special memories.
great service. Thank you.

Beautiful print

Thank you so much to John for the extremely speedy delivery of the most gorgeous print 'Cathedral Cuddle'. The quality of the print far exceeded my expectations. The colours are so vibrant and warm, and it brims over with John's characteristic vitality and joy. The cream paper is a satisfyingly heavy weight and it absolutely deserves the best framing to show off the stunning picture. I know that this will be treasured for many years as a perfect (and very appropriately personal) wedding gift. Thank you!

Excellent

Amazing design and vibrant colours exactly what I ordered and fantastic customer service from John Dyer Gallery, the case was not available for iPhone 15 they made enquiries with their supplier and within a week I was able to place an order thank you

Thank you so much Yvonne, we are so pleased that you love the new iPhone 15 Art Case and were delighted to help you out with this.

This painting makes me smile

I purchased “Bathing Belles” to add to 2 other John Dyer original paintings collected over the years .
We decorated our house and removed another trio of prints , so were hoping to find something suitable at John’s latest exhibition.
We were not disappointed . The colours are vivid and the painting has elements of my childhood : a trip on the Enterprise boat , snd swimming in the sea . There is also a signature seagull (oh how I love those seagulls !!) a chough , a puffin and a friendly seal . I like the play on the words in the title, with bluebells in the foreground .
The off white frames complement the colour palette perfectly .
I was extremely impressed on how quickly the painting was delivered after the exhibition - I had expected to wait at least a couple of weeks , but within days it was with me . As always it was packaged very carefully .

Thank you so much, that is so kind of you to write such a full and generous review and we are delighted you are so happy. Enjoy your new painting and very best wishes from us.

Great book, great people

Great book, great people

Thank you so much for my beautiful picture. After the delivery was left in the rain you were quick to respond and replace the print. It looks amazing as a main focal point in my front room. I would recommend to anyone!

Beautiful

I have many fond memories of Padstow and was so excited to see the print of Padstow. When it arrived it exceeded my expectations! The colors are so vibrant and it’s simply a beautiful fun work of art

I love my Mousehole Poster!

This poster captures the busy, lively, joyful experience of visiting Mousehole at Christmas time!

Simply stunning

The vibrant colour and joyous scenes that John captures are a real delight and truly capture the delight of this beautiful place on the Mediterranean Sea

Joyous! Thank You.

Stripy Swimmers is a joyous riot of exquisite colours and shapes. It has pride of place in my sitting room. Every day it lifts my spirits and energizes me to be creative myself. Thank you Joanne, your unique painting has a very happy home. Thanks also to you John for your expert eye - the frame perfectly enhances the explosion of colour. It was so robustly packaged I wouldn't hesitate to buy from the gallery again knowing that it will arrive safely. I am a very Happy Customer!

Thank you so much for your very kind words. We are delighted you are so pleased and really enjoyed talking to you and advising. We hope you enjoy your new painting for many years to come.

Lovely vibrant print

Slightly overpriced I feel for the A3 size I ordered. But good quality .

We would like to thank you for your five-star review and for sharing your thoughts on Joanne Short's art print. We are thrilled to hear that you found the print lovely and vibrant and that you appreciate the meticulous craftsmanship, fine art paper and light-fast inks that go into creating museum-quality prints that can last up to 100 years. We are sorry you found the price slightly high, but our art gallery museum-quality print standards of paper and ink and the fact that each print is individually created requires a certain price point and delivery is also free. A lower price point would mean we couldn't offer the range at all sadly. We believe that the value of our prints to our collectors lies not only in their exceptional quality but also in the opportunity to own and benefit from a unique piece of Cornish contemporary art at a very accessible price point. We really appreciate your support and review and hope that you enjoy your new Joanne Short art prints for many years to come. Many thanks from us all at the gallery.

I've already reviewed the limited edition print of this. I love it! This is a gift for a neighbour. She loves it too.
