THE VILLA STUDIO is a lovely, airy, exhibition space in one of the elegant, calm houses which overlook Brighton College playing fields.

The Studio Director and Kemp Town Resident, Diana Garnier, showcases the work of several artists at one time, including many Sussex based ones, at her weekend pop up art events and through bespoke viewings by appointment.

Many of the unique pieces featured have a Brighton or even a Kemp Town/Queen's Park/Hanover theme.
Items on display include prints, illustrations, art glass fusion, felt art fashion creations, jewellery, sculptures, ceramics and homeware.

Diana is always looking for new and established artists who would like to have their work exhibited at THE VILLA STUDIO.
A highly talented interior designer with over 30 years experience worldwide, Diana is also able to offer, if required, an invaluable service regarding placement and display suggestions for work purchased from THE VILLA STUDIO within the home or business setting.

Studio Assistant

Olivia Gallichan

My name is Olivia Gallichan. I was born and educated in Jersey Channel Islands and I am presently studying  B.A. Photography at Brighton University. I have had a passion for photography since a young age. Prior to starting University I have had experience in the industry working with some well-respected photographers, on wedding and commercial shoots. I love to travel with my photography capturing portraits of different cultures. Traveling has enabled me to experience photography workshops which has helped me gain valuable experience and has improved my confidence in the field. 


I have been working as The Villa Studio’s Assistant since September, 2019. I am thoroughly enjoying working on putting together various events and projects. This year 2020 will be my first AOH experience at The Villa Studio where we will be exhibiting 13 amazing artists' work. I look forwards to hosting the  Brighton Festival AOH event in the month of May 2020 event with Diana and our hosting team.
