Who Are We?

At DesArts, we believe we can develop a simple and affordable full-service platform to connect artists and designers with their potential audiences, offering an easy to use opportunity to exhibit, promote and sell their work. Setting up a website, developing a "Name" on social media and selling online are complex, expensive and somewhat off putting. We recognise that you should be spending your time on your creative work, not figuring out why your website developer forgot to make your website mobile compatible or search engine friendly! Our philosophy, which we try to infuse into DesArts, is that the artists themselves are the life and spirit of the site and that adding a personal, human face to the creative endeavours we showcase will allow DesArts to grow and develop into a forum for learning, networking and building relationships, for both artists and art enthusiasts alike.

Artist Testimonials

J. Snyder, Abstract Painter

Abstract Painting By Julianne Snyder

DesArts is a fantastic platform for exploring some of the most brilliant facets of the art and design world. They truly appreciate creators and the time and effort they put into what they do. It's a real honour and a privelege to be involved with them.

M. G. Teevan, Photographer

Abstract Photography By MG Teevan

There is so much diverse art and design work on display on DesArts. There is always something new to explore and draw inspiration from.
It was very easy to update my own site and I could see the changes immediately. All the tools were there at my disposal – from creating my own homepage to webmail, from online art shop to web traffic analytics. It’s like a one stop shop for any artist.

T. Penney, Abstract Painter

Abstract Painting King of Hearts by Toby Penney

Sharing my work on DesArts helped me break out of the isolation of the studio. While I had on occasion shared my images via social media with friends and family and I have maintained a website portfolio for several years, sharing my images with the DesArts community opened up my work to a much larger community and along with that, invaluable feedback. This experience helped me realize the function of social media for artists of any age and standing in the art community and I have connected with patrons, gallerists, and editors as a result.
