“I came up from Manchester about six years ago, and opened an Art Gallery on the beautiful little Isle of Bute, just off the West Coast of Scotland. Over the years, I’ve heard many people talk about art as though it’s something for ‘other people’ and I’m trying to change that in some small way. Art is for everyone to enjoy, to criticise, to fall in love with and to talk about. Our open evenings attract a great mix of people and visitors and they’re ‘come as you are’ events – you’ll rarely see me out of my jeans and Mod shirt:). So come in, say hello and browse our fantastic range of art, jewellery and gifts here on the Isle of Bute”.
