About Us

Red Gate Arts is the artistic partnership of sisters Ruth & Kate Sampson.

Founded in 2012 we have come a long way since the early days of village craft fairs! During our journey we feel very lucky to have been shortlisted 4 times in the annual Association of Illustrators 'Prize for Illustration'. Alongside our own work we also take on design commissions and are very proud to have worked with an array of clients including: South Bank London, The London Transport Museum, Caffe Nero and Warner Bros.

At our core is a passion for classic design. Taking inspiration from a wide range of eras and styles we aim to create new and exciting artwork to liven up your homes. Our product range includes hand drawn illustrations, digitally designed posters, patterned notebooks, tea towels, and greeting cards (and perhaps a few more ideas in the pipeline too!)

We create all of our artwork ourselves, working from our studio in the Kent countryside. All prints and products are produced and packaged here in the UK using local printers and suppliers.

Design commissions, wholesale enquiries, & collaborations are welcome so please do contact us with any queries you may have.
