"This is such a great find! Lara has created a lovely local gallery space with a friendly welcome and wonderful selection of art. "

You'll find my little gallery tucked away in a mews just a short walk from Hove seafront.
Originally built around 1881 Lion Mews was the Duke of Portland's stables for many years and is now a bustling pedestrian street housing artisans, small businesses, and Bassett the mews cat who likes to come in and make himself at home.
As the units were built for horses, not humans, it can get chilly inside so I open on an appointment-only basis during the winter. From April to October, I fling the door open to visitors on Fridays and Saturdays, changing the gallery display each week so there's always something new to see.
Throughout May I take part in the Artists Open House Festival as part of the West Hove Trail.
You can preview the current collection on The Artists pages and buy pieces via The Online Shop. However, if you visit the gallery you may also find previous collection works by some of our best-selling artists. If you are planning to visit and would like to see something specific please call ahead so I can get it ready for you.
There is free parking on nearby residential streets but restricted to residents between 10 and 11 am every day unless you're lucky enough to find one of the 2 hour bays. The nearest train station is Aldrington (15 mins walk) and neighboring New Church Road is on a busy bus route with direct links from Brighton and Portslade Stations.
The kettle is usually on and you'll find two great cafés just around the corner plus a multitude of pubs and restaurants within a short walk. And of course, the beach is just at the end of the road.
