We are proud members of the Own Art scheme, which means you can split the cost of your order evenly over 10 monthly payments, completely interest free! You can pay for multiple artworks using the same loan, and you can include framing too. You can also pay an upfront deposit of any amount you like, reducing the following monthly payments.
On our brand new website, you can now complete your purchase via Own Art at the click of a button. It will be available as a payment option at checkout on all eligible products, and takes less than 10 minutes to fill out.
Own Art is a national initiative, supported by Arts Council England, to make it easy and affordable for anyone and everyone to buy contemporary art.
Own Art loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to £2,500 and pay it back over 10 months, completely interest-free. You can choose to finance all or just part of your purchase and multiple items can be bought with one loan, and framing can be included too. The best part is that you can take your artwork home with you straight away.
Applying for an Own Art loan is easy!
The first stage is the difficult bit – deciding what to buy. Once you’ve found the artwork that you want to buy, just let us know that you’d like to apply for an Own Art loan to finance your purchase. All you will need is proof of residence and signature – for example, a driving license. Own Art is available to all UK residents over the age of 18, subject to status. This means that you must be able to meet one of the following criteria in order to be approved for a loan:
– Working at least 16 hours a week (employed or self-employed)
– A retired person in receipt of a pension
– If you are not working but are married to or living with a partner who does meet the above criteria, then you may still apply, provided that your partner is happy for their employment details to be included on your application form.
It only takes 10 minutes!
Once you have chosen your artwork and selected to pay via Own Art, you will be taken straight to an application form, when this has been filled out you will receive an instant decision. After your application is approved you will need to sign the agreement and your order will be processed.
You will receive a welcome letter from Own Art’s finance partner Novuna Personal Finance and following this your 10 monthly payments will be collected from your account by direct debit. This usually starts about four weeks after you’ve made your purchase.
It’s as simple as that!
