Supporting British artists, makers and designers

The Mulberry Tree has been a fixture on Swanage High Street for many years and we're one of the south coast's most popular independent galleries. 

We believe passionately in selling and supporting the work of British artists, makers and designers and in particular those that have a connection with our wonderful county of Dorset. It's a wonderful privilege to be part of their lives and to help them find new audiences for their work and support them in building a career that they love. We're lucky to have forged close ties with some of the most talented artists and crafts folk working today in Britain. We're also firm believers in giving, you our lovely customers, fresh inspiration for your homes - it's all about "making your home more beautiful"

We have an in-house framing service run by co-owner Steve who has been a framer for over 25 years, in fact since he left school at 17. We're very proud of our framing reputation and experience and all our frames are made to order. 

Come and visit us or browse our collection online for original paintings, limited edition prints, hand-crafted ceramics,  contemporary craft, custom-made jewellery, lifestyle and homeware products, and our legendary greetings card ranges.

Our tastes are as unique as the individuals we serve so you're bound to find that perfect gift for someone special, be it yourself or a loved one.

Dee explores themes of living in the countryside, and activities she enjoys such as sewing, hanging out the washing, cycling being out and about or alone pondering life.

In some ways her work is less about life as she sees it but a mirrored reflection to it. Obviously her experiences in fashion and textiles plays a part as do her memories of Norfolk, and the constantly changing landscape.

Dee was born in South Norfolk in 1957. From quite an early age she found excitement challenge and escapism in making and looking at art and images and in other artists. Inspired by a love of fashion and at the time horses, influenced by among others, Munnings, Hockney to Jackie magazine she soon decided she really wanted to be an artist. With a few set backs but much help and encouragement from many people, learning along the way she now works as a full time painter.

We have a selection of limited edition prints from Dee which are beautifully displayed alongside gorgeous ceramics, homewares, textiles, contemporary craft, candles, lush leather bags, handprinted lampshades, greetings cards, clocks, cushions, stationery and soooo much more!

We'd love to see you!
