Helen Chislett Gallery
I set up my online gallery (formerly London Connoisseur) in order to create a platform that connects superb artisanship with those seeking extraordinary and exceptional pieces. Through my extensive network of master makers and artists, the gallery is able to offer unique and beautiful pieces for private residences, superyachts, public art spaces and flagship stores. Nearly every project we take on is made to commission, but there are some available works to purchase from the artists’ own pages.
Through my long career in journalism – and with over 20 books published to date – I have been fortunate to spend time with those at the epicentre of international design, decoration, craft and art. The people I have met and the relationships we have forged continue to inform, excite and inspire both my writing and the curating of the gallery.
Bespoke For A Book
Introducing Bespoke For A Book, a charity initiative to benefit The Prince’s Foundation. Inspired by Craft Britain: Why Making Matters, my latest book co-authored with David Linley, this exhibition brings together thirty-two featured makers who have each made a unique cover to champion the message that craft and craftsmanship in Britain is relevant and thriving.

Given the privilege of doing something I love every day of my working life, I am both humbled and excited to share some of my more recent experiences, conversations, inspirations and passions. I hope you enjoy this glimpse into the intimate world of artists, designers and makers – and the incredible work they create.
