About Us

We fervently believe that art feeds our souls, it enriches our lives and is vital to our well-being. Each piece we are drawn to speaks to us; art can offer us conversation and friendship that lasts a lifetime (read the blog).

We are a friendly art gallery who enjoy placing beautiful things into homes and work spaces, loving the happiness it creates.

A bit of background – Axle Arts is defined by Bridget Sterling, who came to Bath a number of years ago to undertake post graduate studies in fine art. After graduating, she worked with a few well-respected galleries in the area before joining Bath Contemporary, which under her leadership gained a respected reputation. 

Passionate about education, Bridget also set up and ran a successful work experience programme for four years in collaboration with Bath Spa University during this time.

Axle Arts – was established in 2017 in response to a changing art market with rapid e-commerce growth. The new website is image heavy and gives clear, reliable and professional P&P costs across most of the artworks. We are shipping professionals and will source a shipping cost anywhere in the world for you.

Visitors are welcome – Bridget welcomes visitors to her home by appointment, to view artwork in the comfort of an informal and relaxed setting. She also exhibits collaboratively, and relevant viewings may also be arranged at Tasburgh House Hotel and The Royal Crescent Hotel & Spa, Bath.

Guaranteed 100% satisfaction or a full refund – we guarantee that if, on receiving your artwork, you feel it doesn’t sit well in the setting intended, we will refund you fully (please read our terms and conditions for more information). We want you to feel 100% happy with the relationship we believe you are embarking on, since we think a piece of art should give you joy for life.

Client Testimonials

I am delighted with the picture. Quite a bold move to purchase without viewing but it has worked. Many thanks indeed for your facilitation and support.
