About us

Founded by Madeleine Thomas in 2011, Beady Eye Art is an online art gallery that  brings together a selection of limited edition prints and original paintings from UK artists for immediate purchase online. Beady Eye Art also exhibits regularly at pop-up art galleries around Sheffield and South Yorkshire in fun and interesting locations.

The online gallery exhibits a wide range of works using the traditional techniques of printing making: etchings, engraving, silk screen, etching and lino cuts and more recently digital prints whilst large pieces of work are oil and acrylic paintings on canvas and paper.

All works have been selected for their originality, freshness or execution. Together they have been carefully selected  to bring together a balanced portfolio encompassing abstract, figurative, seascapes and art that makes you smile or is nice to touch! The artist’s themselves come from all over the UK; from Edinburgh to Dorset and of course a few of our favourite local Sheffield and Yorkshire artists too. If we love the work then we’ll look to share it with you, regardless of where the artist lives and where they get their inspiration from!

We know that not all art work looks its best online (and some are too big and fragile to post out) so Beady Eye Art’s well established programme of regular pop-up art galleries also includes a selection of ceramics, sculpture and other unique items that complement our online gallery.

We love to chat so do get in touch if you would like to find out more. Artists and Makers, we would love to hear from you too.
