Dedicated to sourcing, developing and presenting beautiful illustration to perfectly meet the needs of the Greetings, Stationery, Home & Gift and Wall Art sectors, internationally, Bright Art Licensing combines a professional, trend-led service with boutique appeal.

What We Do


Representing a complete spectrum of illustration talent, from highly experienced industry-trained designers to debut illustrators, Bright Art Licensing is proud to offer artwork and commission-ready artists to suit any brief.

In addition to offering design with a contemporary and fine art focus, Bright Art Licensing provides a comprehensive selection of art styles, from traditional to whimsical, stylised and graphic to abstract and painterly, catering to an international and diverse client base.

A lightbox facility, enabling design selections to be created, downloaded and shared, is available to clients exploring our online portfolios, and agents are on hand to support with further artist or artwork suggestions, arrange for high resolution artwork viewings, and to give detailed advice about licensing opportunities and commissioning. Licenses can be arranged to accommodate almost any usage and reach requirements, and our agents are always happy to explore all options to achieve a solution that is truly tailored to the individual client's needs.

For projects that demand highly-customised, original artwork, Bright Art Licensing’s integrated approach includes the facility to commission a specific artist or artists, with full support and guidance throughout the process: initial sample work can be arranged to identify the best creative for the brief, while art direction, client-artist liaison and scheduling assistance is offered from start to finish to ensure a professional, beautiful result.
