Inform your friends and relations about your wedding list and we can provide a discreet card for you to enclose with your wedding invitation.

Your friends and relations can then call to the gallery, look up our website or simply telephone us to buy a picture from your chosen list, or to let us know how much they would like to contribute. If a picture you have chosen is too expensive for one guest, then several people can contribute towards it. If after your wedding the picture has not been fully bought, we will ask you whether you would like to pay the remainder yourselves or choose a less expensive piece. Alternatively, simply ask your guests to contact us with their contribution, and then you and your partner can come to the gallery to choose your paintings after your wedding. That way you know exactly how much you have to spend, and you have something exciting to look forward to!

Artist of the Month - Paul James

Self taught artist Paul James is a remarkable and fascinating man. He is a gifted wildlife, animal and landscape artist and a wonderful pianist. It would seem that if he has set his heart on learning something he goes for it big time.

In fact should you make reference to his talents Paul will argue that his creative abilities are not down to talent but more about his attitude and application. Paul demonstrates a dogged determinedness to succeed in everything he does; in particular he admits a desire for recognition and respect as an artist.

He was born and grew up in Leicestershire. His artistic and musical abilities became apparent from a relatively early age and with the support and encouragement of his parents he is essentially self-taught. He did go to Art College at the insistence of his teachers to study graphic design, but being something of a rebel he did not wish to conform to the course requirements and preferred to spend time painting classic cars at the local garage, and neighbors pet cats and dogs, so his studies were not concluded.

He went on to develop a career in music, playing both organ and piano in a range of pubs, clubs and cocktail bars. However, it was not quite the rock star lifestyle that he had envisaged and he returned to his first love of art and began painting professionally in 1986. The haunting beauty of the nearby Charnwood Forest greatly influenced the atmospheric landscape and animal paintings for which Paul is renowned today.

New Arrival - Gavin Collins

Gavin Collins was born in Cape Town, South Africa on May 30th 1971, the son of a farmer and artist. Living on farms all his life, Gavin showed no interest in academic subjects but spent his days working with his hands, drawing and painting. When his talents for art became apparent at the age of 14, his parents supported him and at 16 allowed him to leave school and attend the Ruth Prowse School of art.

" Dun Laoghaire Harbour"

Gavin is without doubt a highly versatile artist having mastered all styles in oil painting. In the past 4 years the demand for Gavin’s work has grown immensely. With international and local collectors snapping up his work as soon as it is completed, this has made Gavin one of South Africa’s best selling artists. Gavin’s creativity has grown along with his passion for painting, recently adding abstract to his already versatile subject matter. In recent years, Gavin has also been using his creative talents in other areas of business and now has 2 of his patented inventions on the worldwide market.

Gavin enjoys his constant inspiration for new work as his love for painting is undying.
