Drawn by Art

Surround yourself with what you love and that will make your house your haven.

Art is not a handicraft - it is the transmission of feeling the artist has experienced.

Leo Tolstoy
Art isn’t supposed to look ‘nice’, it is meant to make you feel something.  For that reason art is evocative and your response to any given piece of artwork is deeply personal. Your home is a reflection of who you are and central to that is your selection of artworks. Each piece tells the story of not only the artist, but also of you – and where and why you acquired it.  Surround yourself with what you love and that will make your house your haven.

An eclectic mix of art that draws you in by telling a story both collectively and individually. There are no design ‘rules’ being applied here in their selection – no contrived guidelines as to what ‘works’ best to complement the room’s decor. It is rather a charming, colourful array of exceptional talent by these artists that inevitably invites an emotional response.  Examine the merit in each and enjoy the privilege of the response that it evokes.
