The Bumblebee Gallery
Bumblebee Gallery was inspired by three generations of creative talent in my family: my mother, Edmere, a former art teacher and successful artist who graduated from The Glasgow School of Art; my daughter, Kim, an emerging artist who has recently graduated from York St John University where she studied Illustration; and myself, Amber, a qualified Spatial Designer who has worked in both commercial and domestic interior design fields.
The Gallery opened in 2017 as an independent art gallery, home accessories and gift shop. It was primarily to showcase the beautiful art and design work created by the amazingly talented family and friends we are lucky enough to have in our lives. It has since developed to include a diverse range of beautifully designed pieces created by over 70 talented British artists and artisans we have discovered as we continue to grow the Gallery’s portfolio of work.
My daughter and I have personally handpicked or commissioned every beautiful piece in Bumblebee Gallery with this William Morris quote in mind. We believe that beauty does not always have to be unique or expensive; it can be a one off original or a quality reproduction; it can come from around the corner or half way across the world. Therefore, Bumblebee Gallery exhibits this full spectrum of beautiful and often useful pieces which we hope you will love as much as we do.
The name Bumblebee Gallery came about one sunny, summer’s afternoon when my daughter and I were mesmerised watching bumblebees buzzing around the cornflowers in our garden. We have always loved bumblebees and knew them to be both useful and beautiful and so the name Bumblebee Gallery was born.
Our hope is to inspire our customers to mix and match the beautiful and sometimes unique pieces from Bumblebee Gallery with their personal possessions at home, sometimes pushing them out of their comfort zone, to help them create their very own individual sanctuary which makes them feel happy, just like our homes do for us
