McKenna Wallart was founded in 2015 when owner Rachael McKenna decided to take a step back in time and pursue her dream as an artist by opening her very own studio. Rachael began in a small section of the Durham Dales Centre, showcasing her hand drawn pet portrait commissions, personalised canvas prints and a small range of giftware.
The collection soon outgrew the space and it was then that McKenna Wallart relocated to a beautiful spacious gallery on the main front street of Stanhope. After a successful reopening, Rachael welcomed Ashleigh Longmoor, her close friend and family member to work alongside her.
Years of careful selection has seen a colourful exhibition of professional guest artists and an ever growing collection of beautiful handpicked gifts, making McKenna Wallart into the destination boutique art gallery it is today!
