Our Team

Chris and Lucy – Owners / Managers
Cornish born Lucy and her Aussie husband Chris took over Truro Arts Company in 2011 and moved the shop to its current premises in River Street shortly afterwards. Their vision is for the business to be the creative hub of Cornwall – offering everything from art products to workshops and exhibitions for both the amateur and professional artist. Plus a fab Arts Café of course!

Marly – Assistant Manager / Exhibition and Workshop Coordinator
Marly has an honours degree in marine and natural history photography and is a Cornwall based photographer and painter. She organizes all our exhibitions and adult workshops, as well as helping customers choose the best products for their projects.

Tina – Children’s Workshop Facilitator

Tina is an escaped English teacher and photographer who spends her spare time accosting strangers on the street and finding about their lives for her blog, One and All: The Many Faces of Cornwall. She also runs our Art Club and Children’s parties.

James has completed a BA Hons in Graphic Design at Falmouth. He has recently joined Truro Arts and will be happy to help with any enquiries regarding our products. When not in the shop he can be found surfing.
