‘Memories of Summer’ by Wendy Satchwell

The solution to adding the perfect finishing touches to your home has arrived

The solution to adding the perfect finishing touches to your home has arrived. For anyone that has ever stood looking at a large empty space on their living room wall and had a vision of a piece of artwork that would look perfect, but lacked the skills to create it themselves - has delivered the ideal solution.

Launched this week, the new website has a wide range of artists across all different categories, from painting and sculpture right across to textile and ceramic art, all ready to create your bespoke affordable art. The artists themselves range from established professionals to up-and-coming art students from the top UK art schools.

Art lovers can visit the website to create a 'Wish List' of what they want to create. Whether it is for an abstract canvas, a garden sculpture or a huge ceramic vase, they can detail the size, colour scheme, medium and budget range. Artists will then respond with their proposals, detailing how they will best deliver the piece and the budget they can do it for. Artists are able to see the price range of other proposals creating a bidding atmosphere, ensuring that everyone gets great price for their commissioned art work.

The idea for the website came when one of the founders, Jo Gourley Froome moved into new house and had a large space above the fireplace that cried out to be filled.

“I knew how large the piece had to be and the colour scheme that would match the room’s furnishings and, having just moved house, we were keenly aware of our budget. What followed was the seemingly endless trawl through online and high street galleries. If the colours were right then the size was wrong and, if we managed to find them both, then the price tags were varied and in, in some cases, extremely prohibitive. I looked into the commissioning route and we would have had to contact all the artists individually in order to get the right piece."

One of the first artists to sign up was the daughter of the late film director Stanley Kubrick and she has since become a patron of the website. Katharina is an established, talented oil painter and she teaches painting classes alongside her mother, Christiane Kubrick at The Stables on the Childwickbury Estate. Supporting up-and-coming artists is incredibly important to Katharina and cites this as her desire to be involved with She sees that the website can facilitate artists making a living by doing what they love, especially in the climate of art funding cuts as well as the steeply increasing university fees for art students.

A key role of will be providing perfect, thoughtful gift ideas. For house warmings, anniversaries, wedding presents and christenings, giving a bespoke piece of art to commemorate the occasion is guaranteed to make a memorable and treasured impression.

Gift Vouchers are ideal if you want to give the perfect personalised gift but either don’t have the time to commission a piece of art, or want to allow your loved one to unleash their own creativity.

If the art work is simply a sketch or painting from a photograph, such as a commissioned portrait of the family or a pet, has a range of sizes and styles for set prices. Art buyers just need to choose the medium and size and upload the photo. They will still receive a Certificate of Authentication for each piece and will be told which artist will create the work.
