Specific packaging should always be used whilst storing or moving works to protect the frames and the works themselves.

Temperature changes – art is best stored in a cool, dry environment.

Moisture should be avoided as it will discolour works on paper and mould can develop on or behind paintings.

Packaging materials – direct contact with plastic and tissue should be avoided.

Handling – simply wearing cotton gloves during handling artworks and especially works on paper will substantially help minimise potential damage.

Direct sunlight – artwork should always be kept away from direct sunlight.

At this stage we do not offer storage services but we can assist and advice on the best options available.
