Auckland's Art Shop for Artists

Located in downtown Takapuna Beach on the North Shore, our store has been serving the local art community since the early seventies. We are owned and operated by working, professional artists and have become the place where like minded creatives choose to gather, share and inspire.

Jim and Sandy working in the studio

We are the only art supply store in the greater Auckland area that has a working artists' studio on premises. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are always happy, willing and able to demonstrate techniques and share tips on the use of various artist materials.

Our focus is to encourage the pursuit of personal artistic expression and to share our expertise and love for the visual arts.
