    Why The Art Buyer?

    The Art Buyer’s mission is simple: to banish blank walls and fill our homes with beautiful art. We know that buying art can be daunting for many people and it’s often difficult to even know where to start. We also know that many artists making amazing and affordable art often struggle to find the right audience. We’re here to help.

    How The Art Buyer works?

    We scour art colleges, degree shows, exhibitions and artist’s studios and work collaboratively with emerging and established artists across the UK. We unearth exciting and accessible art that we hope you’ll live with, and love, for a lifetime. We help new buyers explore their likes and interests and advise on what works in the space they wish to fill. We create connections between art buyers and artists – helping collectors understand more about their art – the story and inspiration behind artists’ work.

    Meet The Art Buyer

    Founder Helen has spent a lifetime in love with art – and is passionate about helping others discover a love for it too. Having studied Art History at Manchester University, she pursued a career in commercial marketing (including managing art sponsorship for Hiscox Insurance, where she worked with The Whitechapel and Serpentine galleries) and went on to develop her knowledge at Sotheby’s and working with galleries in London and Surrey. Helen now revels in travelling the length and breadth of the UK discovering the most interesting and inspiring artists at work today.

    For Helen, art is deeply rooted in the power of memories, it spans generations, sparks conversations and she simply could not be without it. Bringing art to life, discovering it, treasuring it, understanding it is in The Art Buyer’s DNA.

    The Art Buyer Mission

    Helen founded The Art Buyer: to bring the same joy to others’ lives, enjoying a comment from a new client “I never realised how happy having art in the home could make you”. The Art Buyer wants to demystify the art world for new collectors and help established collectors connect with new artists.  By curating a selection of current contemporary art  and bringing the art to your home, The Art Buyer offers the thrill of the discovery, without the hassle. Ultimately sharing the life long pleasure of adorning your walls with art.

    Helen has built up personal relationships with some of the most exciting artists working in the UK today. We connect artists and their work with buyers who trust our honest, friendly advice and the insight we use to source the best individual pieces for you, whatever the budget or brief.

    The Art Buyer Values

    ‘Art with Heart’ is central to The Art Buyer. We donate a percentage of our profits all year round to charitable causes.

    We believe in fair prices for clients and fair commission for our artists. We passionately want the arts to thrive and homes to be filled with beautiful art and crafts. Our personal relationships are at the heart of this.

    We seek to work with ethical and sustainable partners, who cherish tradition and respect the value of true craftsmanship. All our packaging materials are either recycled or eco-friendly.
