The journey began in 1995 when Terry Ryan completed his Joinery apprenticeship. In 1999 the couple moved to the UK to further their experience (Terry as an Estimator in high end corporate fit-out sector & Kirsten as a designer). A love of antique French furniture (and the restoration thereof), painted furniture & interiors prompted the opening of their shop Heirloom in Surrey, UK in 2005.
They returned to South Africa in 2014 and ARTISAN was established.
