Hello and welcome to the bute gallery; my name is Joseph Thomas

and I’m the owner. I started life in Stockport in the north west of England but moved to the idyllic Isle of Bute in the May of 2013 – you couldn’t get a greater contrast between the two. Bute is a beautiful place to live: the people, the culture and the scenery make it a pleasure to be here. Both the large industrial towns of the north of England and the magnificent coast of the West of Scotland are great sources of inspiration for me and my work.

I have always felt I wanted to setup and run my own art gallery.  I was never a great academic during my school years and my way of truly expressing myself was through art and design. Now I am a full time art photographer as well as  running the bute gallery. All this does take time but I truly enjoy and love what I do. You can also see some of my work on the website.
