This month we talk to Carol Caiger about her business Caiger Art, which helps people find perfect artwork to bring their walls to life, make their home reflect their personality and become the space they love to be in!
Caiger Art was started in 2013 and currently represents 40 handpicked artists, with artworks range from £100 to £20,000. All artworks have a theme of layering, this could be paper over paper, layers of paint, or paint scraped away. We specialise in mostly abstract, limited edition prints. In addition to this, we offer an art consultancy for interior designers and individual collectors.

What is your role in the business?
I help people find perfect artwork to bring their walls to life, make their home reflect their personality and become the space they love to be in!
What drove you to start the business?
I have always been a contemporary art lover and decided to change career and do my dream job. I love sourcing and advising on artwork for my clients.
What particular challenges did you have to overcome in setting up your business, and since then?
It is always difficult to work as a very small team, as you end up doing everything! Starting up good office practice to keep things running smoothly has been a big learning curve for me. That is where TAP has been so helpful to me! This is just one area where I can get help when needed.
Why did you choose The Accountancy Partnership?
I started with another accountancy business, but they were not very helpful and their accounting package was not very user friendly. I took more trouble in finding the right accountancy service for me and TAP ticked all my boxes and have been so helpful ever since.
Have we helped you overcome any challenges, and if so, how?
Definitely, the online help and support from my assigned accountant have been fantastic. They are very patient and don’t seem to mind being asked the same thing more than once!
What do you have planned for your business in the future?
Every year sees a new exciting challenge, particularly in 2021/2022 when things will get back to normal. The Covid lockdown has been a successful year for me. People have never spent so much time in their homes and, of course, can see where a piece of art would make a difference to their environment. Hopefully, with more art fairs and exhibitions to look forward to, the future should be even better!
