What's a better way to open our new blog up than with a proper introduction to our team in Canvas.
Paul - The boss.
Paul has owned Canvas since 2008 and celebrates a decade in business this year. Always on the hunt for new artists and makers to represent. Paul has spent years building a reputation for quality in what Canvas offers while retraining the galleries ethos of being relaxed and a enjoyable place to visit.
Usually found pacing outside of the gallery on his mobile making or working on the next big deal!
Louise - the newest edition to Canvas and our new Gallery Manager.
With a background in design, she is typically “arty” and brings years of gallery experience and reputation to Canvas with big ambitions to create the perfect mix of contemporary art, sculpture and craft to Stranmillis. Growing up in the art scene in Belfast, there’s not much that gets past her. Finding new and talented artists at every opportunity she can. Keep an eye out for blonde hair and red glasses, Louise’s trademark look.
Alan - Everyone knows Alan. Chief Framer extraordinaire
If you have ever been in before you will more than likely have met Alan, or at least seen him working behind the scenes in the framing department.
Alan has been with Canvas for over a decade and is one of Northern Irelands most talented bespoke picture framers. Graduating from the University of Ulster, Belfast, in Fine Art, he has an eye for perfection and quality in everything he works on.
You won’t find Alan without a beanie hat on his head and paint on his jeans, but that’s why we love him.
Hope you enjoyed and got to learn a bit more about us here in Canvas.
See you next time.
