about art & soul
Mikey and Shiromi Davison
We are Mikey & Shiromi Davison, a husband and wife team that make up art & soul.
Mikey is a North East artist whose love of local landmarks and landscapes have inspired him all his life, creating art for family and friends before turning to sharing his art with the public, at art fairs, shops and galleries around the area.
Shiromi is the front-of-house of art & soul, organising events, attending art fairs and fulfilling orders, making sure people receive their beautiful artwork safely.
We run art & soul from our home in Middleton St. George, Darlington, in the heart of the rugged and beautiful North East of England.
Our artwork is created with acrylics on canvas and acrylic paper, inspired by the places and people we love.
Our Etsy shop has our full range of Mounted Prints and Tote Bags.
We also sell framed prints, originals on canvas, cards, mugs and coasters through local shops and craft fairs. We have a new range of Tote bags, featuring a selection of our artwork.
For special gifts, Mikey may be able to add a little touch to personalise the painting, such as a person, a family or pets. Mikey also takes commissions and will work with you to create a truly unique piece of work. Please contact us to find out more.
