About us

Beyond The Sea was founded in 1994 by Demelza Prettejohn. Having travelled the world and studied retail management, she worked for Laura Ashley opening up and managing stores within the UK.

With an artistic background and a love for retail Demelza Prettejohn decided it was time to set up her own business. She opened her first gallery in Truro in 1994. She then extended her empire by opening up in Padstow just at the same time Rick Stein was putting his mark there with all his wonderful fish restaurants and cafes.

Jessica Cooper has been with Beyond The Sea since the beginning and has grown from strength to strength. Over the years we have gained some wonderful artists such as John Piper, Michael Praed,  David Wheeler, Debbie Lord, Yvonne Coomber, Kate Richardson, Michael Sanders and Caroline Walker.

We have a great following of regular clients and always look forward to welcoming new clients and our regulars year after year.
