Welcome To Dreamtime Art

The birth of Dreamtime Art came from a vision to take quality Aboriginal Art to the world based upon respectful, ethical standards that delivers fair reward to the artists – authenticity and value to the buyer.

As an Indigenous owned business, Dreamtime Art takes its social responsibility seriously with the following goals woven into the heart of our business.

We recognise the importance and significance of our artists Dreamings and that we are responsible for sharing Dreamings in the most accurate and appropriate way.

Our devotion to our artists challenges us to constantly find innovative ways to promote their art in order to create sustainable employment opportunities for their future. We adhere and abide by the rules set out in the Art Codes to which we are privileged members and signatories..

We have great expectations from ourselves and we always want to push ourselves a little further. We are open and honest about our capabilities. We rely on our passion to keep us energised but we resist the urge to do things too quickly.
We will work hard to continually grow, evolve and improve the state of our business. Dreamtime Art will always be open to learning, changing and developing. This enables us to be better in business for the benefit of our artists, ourselves, our clients and for the Indigenous culture as a whole. It is only when we are open to learn, we can truly know.
