Olivia Connelly is a member of The Art Council’s Own Art scheme, which means you can apply for an interest-free (representative 0% APR) loan to purchase art between £100 and £2500, payable over 10 months. A simple online application process and credit check usually provides an instant decision – and the best part is that you can take the art home without having to wait for the loan to be paid off first.

Here are some examples:

Mark Vessey’s EIGHTIES at £695 would be £69.50 per month for 10 months

Ortiz’s BIG FLOWER at £2250 is £225 per month for 10 months

The scheme is flexible and can be used for all or part of a purchase, and two people can combine a loan each for the same piece. Everything you need to know is at www.ownart.org.uk.  If you are interested in purchasing a piece via Own Art just let us know.
