About Us

Cotswold Art Supplies was started in 1986 by Mary Frame and her daughter Gill Carrick, who felt that there was a need in the area for a specialised service for the many local artists, both professional and amateur.

The business has two main objectives; to supply a wide range of Artists Materials and a Bespoke Picture Framing service.

Based in Stow-on-the-Wold, a beautiful and historic market town in the centre of the Cotswolds, the enterprise has grown into a flourishing business while still retaining its personal service to its many customers. We serve Bourton-on-the-Water, Cheltenham, Stratford, Leamington Spa, Burford, Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Norton, Cirencester and Shipston-on-Stour and more local towns.

Mary retired 12 years ago and the business is now run by Gill, her Framing Manager Julia Allen, and a team of experienced staff who are happy to assist and, where necessary, advise our customers whether they are total beginners or experienced professionals.
