Artbnb is a new business that has an original approach to increasing artist exposure and selling works of art.

Our vision is to transform holiday accommodation into a new generation of art gallery, one that guests live in!  We aim to reach those who love culture but who may have never gone looking for art to buy.

We strive to make art accessible to all, and to fit seamlessly into your travel experiences, providing the opportunity to pick up beautiful art along the way.

Who we are…

Jo Stansfield

Jo Stansfield - close up 2 - Copy smallJo lives in Cambridge with her husband and two small boys. She has always been an art lover, and loves to be surrounded by art. With a career in software and technology, Jo paints as a hobby, and has dreamed over the years of running her own art gallery.

Recently becoming a landlord of a holiday rental, Jo was faced with decisions about how to decorate it, when the idea for artbnb struck. What if, rather than using cheap, mass produced prints on the walls, do something that made her property so much more special? Could she display original art and limited editions? The idea developed from there.
