Updated Gallery website
We have recently changed the way our online stockroom works. Rather than searching in the main stockroom each artist tab now has an 'Available Works' section which will be regularly updated to illustrate only works available for purchase by each artist. The original stockroom is still active but has a focus on featured works rather than represented artist stock. Other sections of the website will continue to have more comprehensive examples of an artist's style and evolution of work over the years. We have made this change in an attempt to make searching for available works by each artist simpler, but, as always, if you are having difficulty obtaining the information you need please contact us.
