Mothering Sunday and Women's History Month
Since 1987 March has been a month dedicated to celebrating the (often overlooked) contributions of women to history, society, and culture. Its beginning can be traced as far back as 1909 to the first Women’s History Day in New York, when it commemorated the anniversary of the thousands of women who marched in the garment workers’ strikes against low pay, long work hours, and the lack of voting rights.
Art to Brighten the Gloomiest Winter Day
You don’t have to wait for the summer to enjoy panoramic sea views; take full advantage of the nautical whimsy in Gary Walton’s Waiting For the Tide which balances the warmth and familiarity of the seaside with a romantic simplicity, creating an air of nostalgia that lulls you into a sense of calm and serenity.
For the Love of Dog...
The antics of our canine companions, and the outpouring of love we have for them is a joyous thing to behold, as are the many depictions of our puppy pals the art world has to offer. From Pablo Picasso’s delightful depictions of Lump, a frolicsome Daschund with whom he had a wonderfully fond friendship, to more contemporary compositions, our pampered pooches prove just as popular on canvas as they are in our homes.
Artwork to Match Your Favourite Books
If you know that your loved one is a book aficionado, especially one who dotes over the cover artwork of their favourite book (or even one who pick books based solely on its design), then why not get creative and buy them a piece of art that matches their literary sensibilities? This blog will give you a few pieces to help inspire and excite you for the holiday to come!

Can Art Promote Relaxation?
With its warmer weather, trees vibrant with leaves, and a bit of time off from theworking week, the summer season has proved to be a great time to practice a bit of self-care. If you’ve relished the opportunity to indulge in a little ‘me time’, why not continue your practice into the cooler months, when we often need it the most.So, what can we do to promote a little tranquillity in our lives, and can ‘art’ help to induce a sense of relaxation? There is certainly some testimony to suggest so.

Feline Art - How Cats Have Inspired Artists Throughout History
Our obsession with, and adoration for our feline friends has endured for many centuries. And a great illustration of this is seen through their representation in art throughout history, from Ancient Egyptian tomb art, Japanese woodcarvings, and Impressionist paintings, all the way to current day contemporary paintings and an endless stream of quirky internet memes.

Looking After Our Green Spaces and Britain's Urban Wildlife
You don't have to live in rural areas to find a wealth of wild animals in the UK. In Britain's towns and cities, it is possible to spot birds of prey, urban foxes, bumblebees, and tufted ducks to name just a few. The Wildlife Trust states, “The green spaces of our towns and gardens bring nature into our daily lives, brightening our mornings with birdsong and the busy buzzing of bees”.
