Testimonials from artists already selling with us
You are the loveliest retailer to supply work to. You completely get what I make, and you completely understand when your order is going to be late because my dog has pulled me over and I have scraped hands and knees, or I haven’t answered your email because I’m hiding under the duvet in a panic, or I’ve forgotten to order something vital like boxes to put my brooches in. It’s a joy to send my work to someone who appreciates and understands what hand-made really means.Yvette Brown
Heather and Nick have created a unique independent shop in The Pirate and Bluebelle. As well as promoting the work of local artists and makers, they also celebrate the landscape surrounding them and use it as a key feature in both the aesthetic of the shop and in the photographic work that is featured. They have garnered a following within the local community, as well as visitors to Gourock, all built through their own appreciation and celebration of the area.
I’m a big fan of their inclusive approach, by involving local artists (including creatives who live in Gourock) and their support of community initiatives and organisations such as Newark Enterprises.
The experience in shop is always very relaxed and welcoming, which has again, helped to build their reputation and place within the community, and position themselves as an integral part of the creative scene with an inclusive approach.Jon Bishop
I have been selling my artwork through the Pirate and Bluebelle for the past 18 months and have found this to be a fantastic experience.
Both Heather and Nick have great knowledge of the local market and their support and feedback has been invaluable to me in developing my work in a more commercial way.
They are always looking for new ways to promote artist’s work and their beautiful gallery provides the perfect place for me to display my local prints and watercolours.
Heather and Nick are always encouraging and enthusiastic and I have definitely benefitted from their expertise.
The Pirate and Bluebelle is a great success and Heather and Nick are the epitomy of professional and friendly dedication and creativity. I am very grateful for everything they do in promoting my art. They work extremely hard, are always professional and most importantly are encouraging, organised and creative business people. As a result, they have created a very fresh, exciting and successful business that is a jewel in the town of Gourock.Kristine Walker
