Exclusive Gifts

Our of our key aims is to stock British designed and made exclusive gifts. We stock a range of solid bronze limited edition sculptures to sit alongside our existing high quality resin range. We also stock original paintings and prints of local scenes from local artists, and photography by Tim Roberts. Debbie Boon Whether painting animals, flora & fauna, or portraits, Debbie aims to capture and convey her personal experience of the subject through colour, light and texture. Working on canvas, she uses heavy bodied acrylics and glazes, working quickly at the initial stage to block in the main elements of the composition and then applying layers of paint to create texture. In this way she is able to create original artworks, that have an energy and vibrancy which reflects the ‘joie de vivre’ she feels when faced with a subject that captures her imagination. Peter Dworok Peter has begun to put together a new body of work based on his interest in the landscape and his regular visits to the Isle of Skye, the North Yorkshire Moors, Derbyshire and the Lake District. Spectrum have a collection of original oils on canvas and board, as well as original acrylics on paper.
Becky Mair Becky inspired to produce fluid, energetic, representational work as an immediate response to a technique developed by Jackson Pollock. Working mainly in acrylic paint, ink or domestic emulsion paint, Becky works directly from the tube or paint pot, dropping paints from above, onto paper laid on the floor.
Robin Puplett Robin is based in the lovely market town of Thirsk, North Yorkshire, and produces landscapes of the local area, as well as further afield. Working in acrylics on canvas, Robin captures the essence of the surrounding Moors and Dales beautifully.
Nolon Stacey Nolon Stacey is a self-taught pencil artist specialising in drawings of British wildlife, rural scenery, and farm animals. Having never had any formal art training, Nolon acquired the methods he uses through years of trial and error. Each drawing can take anywhere from 50 to 100 hours to complete.
Peter Brook Peter Brook, the Pennine landscape painter, taught art at Sowerby Grammar School before becoming a full time artist in his 40’s. His paintings depict a vanishing world; a world of farmhouses in the moors, of mills, of people who inhabit the area.  Complemented by Peter’s humorous, no-nonsense and observational captions / titles, this range of prints are guaranteed to bring a smile and wistful nostalgia when viewing.
Kurt Meyer Eberhardt Hand pressed copperplate prints, from original engravings by Kurt Meyer Eberhardt. Printed and produced using the same highly skilled process as when Eberhardt was alive. All hand finished prints produced strictly to order.
Angela Davidson An artist who is entirely self-taught, Angela’s inspiration usually comes from her local surroundings. Angela’s collection of limited edition prints range from champion bulls through to heavy horses, springer spaniels, labs, border terriers, sheep and game birds to name a few.
Ruth Buchanan Ruth Buchanan started drawing horses as a child. The fascination remained with her throughout her careers in graphic design, as a college lecturer and riding instructor. It was inevitable, she says, that she would be true to her childhood obsession, and she became a full-time sporting and equestrian artist in 2001, adding hunting, hounds and dogs to her portfolio.
Sue Howells Sue Howells was born in Birmingham in 1948 She is a self trained artist now working full time as a painter and regularly exhibits in London at the Royal Water Colour Society. Her individual style, for some evocative of Lowry, displays a real energy and sense of nostalgia for the viewer. Totally fearless, Sue rubs pastel, ink and watercolour paint onto the surface, even flicking runny ink at the paper to produce shapes, which in turn are turned into dogs on leads, prams pushed against the wind, men striding against the elements.
 Mary Ann Rogers Mary Ann is a self taught artist, who began painting at a very early age and has become one of the most acclaimed watercolour painters of her subjects in Britain. Elongated paws, game birds legs, foxes tails are exaggerated to produce images which are fun, carefree and cleverly observed.
 Hannah Dale Hannah Dale, as Wrendale Designs, has produced a range of fun, lighthearted and quirky images. Initially working from her kitchen table, Hannah’s range now encompasses prints, cards, mugs and cookware.
 Rosemary Coates Rosemary Coates has produced a range of limited edition prints of maps in the following areas: Racing, Hunt, Beagling and Harriers, Eventing and Point to Point.
 Nigel Artingstall Nigel Artingstall produces a wide range of wildlife images, painting with Gouache, using an airbrush for the backgrounds, giving the finished piece an almost three dimensional quality.
Oliver Preston Oliver draws for the Field Magazine. His work has been published in The Times, The Guardian, The Spectator and Punch Magazine. His humorous images, with captions to match often raise giggles and laughter in our gallery area.
Robert E Fuller Robert Fuller’s life long passion for wildlife was inspired by his early years growing up on a farm in East Yorkshire The passion has been further fuelled by his travels within the UK and also in Africa and India to collect wildlife reference for his original paintings. Ranging from British wildlife, owls, African studies and British garden birds, Robert’s portfolio continues to expand, demonstrating his ongoing talent and skill in this area,
Jo Stockdale Jo is based in the Richmond area, a beautiful part of North Yorkshire. She is inspired by the wildlife and animals that surround her. Her mastery of oils, pastels and charcoal demonstrate a true talent at work.
