Home Is Where The Art Is

If you are an artist, a lover of art then I hope that I can inspire you to do what you love.

Changes Are Afoot!

Sharon James

It's been a while I know and there is a good reason for that. I have been thinking and thinking takes me a long time as I like to do it properly.
I started this blog to document my passage of progress of transformation from the bike shop to a gallery, then a gallery owner and I thank all that have stayed with me through that.

Of late I have found that the commitment of finding new content and the time to write my blog has been difficult. The truth is, it is time for my blog to evolve. I feel that I have probably gone as far as I can go with the blog in its former guise so now I am going to use it to discuss the challenges and successes that I have as an artist and a gallery owner.

I have selflessly promoted the artists that I show at the gallery and I will continue to do this on a smaller scale on various forums including here at the beginning of each new show.

That will be all though, I will be using my blog to hopefully interact with other artists and share my work with you and also I will be inviting you to get more involved if you would like to.

I am attempting to fall back in love with the experience of writing my blog. I hope that you will enjoy what I have to say too.

I will be giving some online masterclasses in useful subjects still as I know they were particularly popular.

I am excited about sharing all of my new projects with you via my blog. Trust me there are loads, as my work is also evolving into something new.

Tomorrow will be dedicated to the work of Nick Harris who is currently on show at the gallery and then it's over to me, my work and my inspirations. Hopefully you and yours too.


  1. it takes quite a bit of commitment both for blog and gallery. well done you.
    I try to update mine, but as it takes a while to create new work, I dont always know what to say. It is not easy being interesting!
    I must seek out your gallery one day, as I am always looking for new places to show my own work. keep at it.

    1. Hi Moira, thanks for your comment. It's hard to keep it interesting. Thanks for reading.

  2. Sorry if this is dim - but where is the gallery? And opening hours?

  3. Hi Louise, the gallery is in Swanage, Dorset. It's open 6 days a week. 11-5 closed Sundays.
