Both Alan and Terence hail from the corporate world, where they have worked most of their lives. They decided to go into business on their own and follow their dream.

The founding owners recently retired and the business was taken over by Alan Gordon and Terence Stevenson as from June 2018. Alan has, since a child, always had a passion for the Arts. His first oil was bought at a church bazaar for R5.00, when he was 12!!!! The picture badly needed a new frame, which his mother paid for, costing about R50.00 in those days. The painting, of aloes, still hangs proudly in his mother’s house.

Terence has always had a flair for interior decorating and always keeps up to date with the latest furnishings, finishes and décor. So together, they make a great team for this type of business.

Alan and Terence have given the gallery a fresh, new, modern look and bring a new “vibe to the business”. The focus is as always on our original Art work however the new Gift range livens up the Gallery.
