Art Studio Direct  

Sometimes the best things come in small packages, and we feel that applies to us ... professional quality but without the huge cost of running a large high street gallery.

With the aid of our high definition monitor we can offer you an unlimited number of paintings, styles and artists along with bespoke framing and other gallery quality items that you can buy, choose or commission from our stock or direct from the makers.

We save on our costs and that saving is passed on to you - buy directly from professionals painters for far less than you would pay for the same work from a high street gallery or exhibition.

We also have some top quality work in our glass display unit showing sculptures, jewellery and quality crafts.


Sculpture - Limited Edition

Moira Purver SWA

Moira has exhibited annually at the Mall Galleries in London as a member of the Society of Women Artists - elected as a full member in 2014 - and has received an award for her sculpture ''Male Torso'' which was presented by Princess Michael of Kent.

She has exhibited at some top level galleries and exhibitions and we feel privileged to represent her in our Chichester mini gallery - Art Studio Direct.

The focus of Moira Purver`s work is figurative sculpture. She loves the challenge of capturing some of the vitality and expression of the living form. Her sculpture, worked largely from life, has a vitality and warmth with a mixture of restful and dynamic poses. The subjects for her work include the simple female and male form, dancers and children at play as well as some animal sculpture. Moira works her original sculptures in either wax or clay, from which they are then cast in bronze or bronze resin. She is an active member of the Surrey Sculpture Society and has exhibited with them and also at the Mall Galleries in London and galleries in London, Dorset, Devon and Somerset.


Art Studio Direct


We are offering a few spaces on our new (mini gallery) computer. What is it and why should you join us?

I am a professional†painter with many years of experience selling art from galleries, including my own gallery, exhibitions and online. The problem I find with online sites is that I am in competition†with 1000's of other artists - good for the site taking a commission on sales or charging you a fee but not good for the seller trying to get noticed or a realistic price.†

We offer you the opportunity to be one of a limited number of artists (a maximum of ten) that will be featured†on our in gallery computer†monitor. Our new mini gallery will have a small selection of work displayed on the walls but the majority of art will be sold from a large computer monitor and the customer will be directed to you to make the sale, or take a commission† - a new customer for you, not just a new customer for an online site or gallery!

You will also have the options of using us as a collection†point or maybe useful address for your business correspondence.†

What will it cost you? †Because this is a new venture†for us, and we understand it may take time build up to a level we are happy with, we can make you an opening offer of £10 per month, one month minimum time, with a £10 administration charge will be taken from any new customer we send you (that will also include and communications etc associated with work sold on your behalf) and the £10 taken from the customer will be deducted by the seller from the advertised selling price. † ††
