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.

Nicholas Hely Hutchinson

Born in 1955, Nicholas Hely Hutchinson studied at St. Martins School of Art and Bristol Polytechnic (Fine Art).

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.
 
"On a much deeper level Hely Hutchinson uses his paintings to convey his own intensly individual interpretation of the landscape, cityscape or interior which he has observed."
