We’ve decided to make a few changes to the way you can browse through our original artwork, limited editions and mirrors online. With such an extensive range of artists and mirrors we wondered how can we improve the ease of searching on our website. The idea of a refine-by menu came about which made it simple to choose something you like and then adding or removing an attribute making it easier for the user to find exactly what they’re looking. When looking for art and mirrors it’s difficult, there’s so many styles, sizes and colours to choose from. With our new refine by menu you can simply select a category and then refine your selection by choosing other attributes…it also tells you how many items are in each selection giving you the widest choice right in front of your eyes.
We’re also making it that little easier to browse online with your mobile device.
With our new mobile enhanced website you can browse away on the move. Before you could use the website on your mobile but would have had to zoom in and out on your selection. With our new mobile compatible website you don’t have to – It’s just like the main one, just much easier to browse and look at pictures. As soon as its ready to use we will let you know. Keep checking back for updates.
Don’t forget to add our website to your home screen if your using an iPod, iPad or iPhone. It makes it even easier to connect to our website. In Safari just click the arrow next to the address bar and then ‘Add to Homescreen’.

Astounding new artwork from Iain Faulkner. A series of new editions have been released this year the latest are pictured here. With compositions developed in the course of his 15year career, Iain Faulkner has paved the way for a re-discovery of the almost-forgotten Romantic Movement, allowing a younger generation of artists, painters, sculptors and photographers to follow into the richness the artistic period.
His recurring theme of reflection is a simple yet extraordinary effect which has a profound meaning in the artist’s mind. He studies the optical effects of colour, light and refraction in a body of water, whether that is a humble puddle or a grand loch at home in Scotland. His talents are simply amazing and it is not surprising when his limited edition prints sell out in weeks of release.
Iain Faulkner was born in Glasgow. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 with a BA in Fine Art, he has established himself as a skilled draughtsman with the integrity to embrace the difficult path of contemporary figurative painting. Still only in his 30s, he has already had numerous successful solo shows in the UK, USA, Spain and Italy. Iain was commissioned to paint the European 2010 Ryder Cup Team member portraits.

The 2010 First Minister’s Christmas card painted by Jack Vettriano has raised £86,000 for charity. The original oil painting and limited edition prints of the image were sold at auction in St Andrews on Friday raising a staggering amount for these amazing charities.
The original painting – Let’s Twist Again, featuring a dancing couple at a festive party raised £68,000 while a special collection of limited edition prints went for £18,000. The original painting which was expected to sell for £25,000 was unveiled by Mr Salmond at the National Gallery of Scotland in December.
The money raised on the night will go to Bethany Christian Trust, Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres, Quarriers and Teenage Cancer Trust.
Alex Salmond said: “Jack is a great supporter of good causes and his distinctive style is recognised around the world. He has proven himself time and again to be Scotland’s painter of the people.”
Previously declined to display any of Jack Vettriano’s works, the National Galleries announced on Thursday his self-portrait The Weight will be exhibited at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery from September 2011.
