Hello and welcome! We are Monika and Stephen Pick, two creative souls brought together by fate 12 years ago in London. Our relationship has flourished thanks to a shared passion for travel, art, film and culture in general.
Our background is wide-ranging. Stephen is a filmmaker, visual artist, and lecturer turned creative entrepreneur. He has exhibited in Poland and his short films have been screened internationally.
I’m originally from Poland, but decided to settle in the UK 15 years ago. By day, I’m a very respectable (wink) market researcher working for a big media company in London. At night and on weekends, I’ve been blogging about interiors, travel and lifestyle on secretgardenhome.com; the blog was originally created to capture our first house transformation.
We got married last year, and after a long wait, we became parents for the first time.
Looking for a new creative project and wishing to adjust our lifestyle to welcome our baby boy, we decided to set up PickArtHome to share our collection of prints and photographs with like-minded people.
Each piece has a story behind it and has been carefully selected to appeal to people passionate about contemporary art and culture.
We strongly believe that art should be inclusive, therefore anyone passionate about original art pieces and interiors, regardless of their background, should be able to find something for themselves on our site. Whether you are starting your art collection or expanding your current one, PickArtHome aims to inspire you and help you make your space creative and original.
Please check our Collections and let us know your thoughts. It’s just a beginning for us, so please follow our creative start-up to find out more.
Monika and Stephen
