“Having the artwork at B+B Weymouth has been a great addition to our guests visit. Many guests have commented on the work and it certainly adds an extra element to our fresh contemporary brand”

Emma Carter, General Manager B+B Weymouth

“My projects require a company that can offer diversity in design from artwork to digital wall coverings and more besides! SWA offer a professional, unique service producing artwork that is well received by staff and students alike”

Teresa Denney, Technical Officer, Estates, Bournemouth University

“Subtle art is a bit like having background music playing quietly in a restaurant. It makes a huge difference to people’s moods and the way they interact. We’ve recently teamed up with South West Artwork who can create a personalised bespoke artwork service which includes wall murals, paintings, photography, sculptures and other imagery”

Richard Blandford, SEO Campaign Manager BT Group

“Laura introduced me to an author whose stories perfectly fitted my style and interests. My client was fantastic to work with, we had great communication and Laura was there the whole way. She negotiated fees etcetera for me and made sure that things were going smoothly in the design process. When I finished the piece she promoted our collaboration on the SWA website and blog and payments were received promptly. A perfect project, well managed and I look forward to working with her again”

Olivia Brotheridge, freelance illustrator

“I contacted South West Artwork to seek their help in finding an illustrator for a collection of short stories. Laura was extremely helpful, taking my brief and finding an illustrator on her books within a few days. The process was quick and easy, with Laura making sure I was happy throughout the process as well as guiding me in providing the information for the illustrator, something I was unsure on. Once I had decided on an illustrator, Laura and South West Artwork were happy to step to one side and let the artist work, always available if I had a question or problem that needed sorting. I gladly recommend Laura and South West Artwork to anyone looking for an artist or illustrator”
