About Us


Illustration by Suzie Southerton

We are an independent and traditional art shop supplying materials to artists, students and hobbyists – and a professional picture framing service.

Established in 1985, we now have two outlets – one in Paul Street, Taunton and the other in the picturesque seaside town of Lyme Regis.

Both our shops hold identical stock although our Lyme branch has an additional gallery and holds a generous stock of greeting cards and limited edition prints.

Discount prices on art materials are always available throughout the store, please get in touch for further details.
