The website created for this Art Gallery includes a full e-commerce solution.
The Mulberry Tree Gallery in Swanage, Dorset, needed a new responsive website. Also a hosted e-commerce solution, which could be managed from any location, not tied to a database.
After much research and a couple of failed attempts, Jubilee webdesign provided a solution using the popular Shopify interface. This provided all that was needed in terms of being able to set up rather complicated shipping rules, as well as providing advanced filtering solutions to make it easy to find products by artust, or by type of product.
The basic template was re-designed and functionality of Shopify tweaked to come up with a result which is already resulting in increased sales.
One of the advantages of Shopify is being able to create collections - some of which are listed below to show how they can be used in the context of an online webshop:
Louise Braithwaite - Louise Braithwaite discovered her talent for art and design at school, where she specialised in screen printing.
Susie Brooks - Susie works as an illustrator and printmaker, making artwork for clients and customers locally and internationally.
Vanessa Cooper - Vanessa Cooper takes her models from nature and from family life - from forests, gardens, pets, and children.
Iain Faulkner - Faulkner's paintings are concerned with the portrayal of strong and powerful images relying on visual impact as there is rarely any narrative.
Mary Fedden - Mary Fedden's work is in nearly every modern British collection including the Tate, the Royal Academy and the personal collection of Her Majesty the Queen at Windsor Castle.
Nicholas Hely Hutchinson - Nicholas lives in the heart of Dorset with his wife and two children. He gets much of his inspiration from the surrounding countryside and the coast. He also travels to some of his favourite places to paint - particularly Venice, Paris, the West of Ireland and Cornwall.
Claire Henley - Claire's work is playful and bright, conveying a lifelong love of the sea.
Emma Jeffryes - Trained as a Textile Designer, with an MA from the Royal College of Art, Emma Jeffryes always returned to her true passion - painting, which she used to both aid and inspire her textile designs.
Ron Lawson - Ron Lawson is widely regarded as Scotland's most original and distinctive contemporary landscape painter.
Bree Merryn - Bree draws inspiration from her rural rural surroundings in Yorkshire and Cornwall where she has developed her range of animal art.
Mani Parkes - Mani says her paintings are often inspired by day to day sights on the school run. She captures charming buildings, quirky characters and chance encounters.
Angie Smyth - Angie's work is comic, flirtatious, a little bit cheeky - not at all likely to take itself too seriously.
Oliver Pyle - Oliver has established himself as a successful landscape artist, working exclusively in watercolour.
Mia Tarney - Mia Tarney was born in Surrey in 1973 and educated at Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, London where she won a commendation from The Royal Society of Portrait Painters at her final year exhibition in 2001.
Jemma Rees - Gemma makes characterful sculptures, often of dogs, whose personalities are so well presented that you feel they could jump onto your lap. Created using a mixture of wire, paper, metal and paper clay, she then paints her sculptures with watercolours and acrylics.
