Our Story

Art Shed Brisbane's love affair with art

Meg and Manny met at Art Shed. Meg was studying art at Griffith Uni. Manny, a GP was teaching himself to paint. Both were living their devotion to art.

Meg was the store's first employee. In the first week Art Shed opened, Manny asked her out to a life-drawing class! Years later Meg and Manny were married, and they bought the store.

It then became “Art Shed Brisbane”. This store has been pivotal in changing the face of "art supplies" in Queensland, and to a great extent, throughout the nation.

Thanks to Art Shed Brisbane, art materials have actually become more affordable. We were the first to seriously offer both ends of the spectrum. Affordable and top end fine art gear. Increasing numbers of stores now also offer inexpensive yet competent materials for those interested in having a go. The number of places that continue to look down their noses at beginner artists or amateurs, is shrinking.

Meg and Manny set out to make theirs an art store for art lovers. They decided their “baby” should be bursting with seductive art materials at fair prices. More importantly, their mission became to share their passion and inspire the creative spirit in every visitor.

People come to buy art materials. They leave with much, much more.
