About us

Brush & Canvas was established in 2006 as an art materials retail outlet by its present owner Derek Goosen. Focused on providing the widest possible choice in art supplies and design materials, backed by exceptional service, Brush & Canvas soon developed its reputation to become a first choice destination for many in the creative arts community of Cape Town’s southern suburbs.

The Art Shop Hermanus was established in 2000 and absorbed into the Brush & Canvas fold in 2009. Similarly, The Art Shop has, over the years built its reputation as the destination of choice for many in the Overberg creative community. It too provides exceptional choice in fine art supplies, graphic materials, paper and board, for a broad clientele of professional artists, leisure painters and students.

Both stores offer their respective clienteles convenience and accessibility, in an intimate and friendly environment where knowledgeable and attentive service is provided by real people who care, and are passionate about what they do.  A frequent shopper program, a regular newsletter, and a willingness to source unusual items to satisfy distinctive needs, all contribute to our stores’ mission to provide a unique shopping experience.

Our online store showcases the wide range of products on our shelves and allows you, our valued customer, the opportunity to shop in the comfort of your own home any time of the day or night.

Typically, the items available for online shopping are available in store and can be shipped out promptly.  However, on those occasions when items are out of stock – we endeavor to ensure speedy replenishment and we will keep you updated.
