My promise

I have surrounded myself with a highly qualified team of experts who will go out of their way to ensure my collectors and partners are 100% satisfied.  Although I am not involved in the day-to-day running of the gallery and sales, the buck stops with me. It is my commitment to ensure that this promise prevails and is always honoured.

"art.ryno promises to produce high quality art to all interested parties, incuding materials, methods and frames (where applicable). We will guarantee safe packaging and only use the most reliable couriers and transportation suppliers. We only deal with ethically- and morally sound partners and organisations, and will dissociate ourselves without fail where it may come to light that this is not the case. Collectors become part of the art.ryno family, and we will therefore look after you as such. We love maintaining a close relationship with our collectors and to keep track of where Ryno's art is showcased in the world. We do however maintain the strictest level of confidentiality where required and will never divulge sales or owner details without prior agreement and/or consent."

This is my promise,

Modern Slavery Act 2015
