Established in 2004, Cavaliero Finn is renowned for its carefully curated portfolio of expertly crafted objects and award-winning fine art from some of Britain’s leading contemporary artists. The gallery does not follow trends in its selection of work; the emphasis is on originality and craftsmanship of the highest standard, and it seeks out heirloom pieces that have a lasting, stand-alone aesthetic beauty.
The gallery has an exceptional reputation amongst its clients and within the industry for showcasing the finest works from emerging, mid-career and established contemporary artists and makers.
In addition to the curated selection of art and design available through the online gallery, the company curates regular pop-up exhibitions in London in carefully chosen venues and often as part of Crafting A Difference, a collaboration between five of the UK's leading craft galleries, including Vessel Gallery, Ting Ying, MADEINBRITALY and jaggedart. These one-off exhibitions, programmed throughout the year, are complemented by participation in contemporary art fairs such as the London Art Fair, Collect and Artefact at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour.
Cavaliero Finn is still passionately run by the founders Juliana Cavaliero and Debra Finn who first met studying art at Warwick University. Before forming the company, Juliana Cavaliero spent ten years in the contemporary art world including the Anthony D’Offay Gallery in London and Debra Finn spent ten years in PR ending up on the board of Consolidated working with a range of consumer clients within the Virgin Group.

I came across Cavaliero Finn several years ago at their private view and bought a beautiful painting by Gill Rocca. Since then I have returned often and always find something different and interesting.
Most recently I acquired a large piece by Angela Charles and I have found Debra and Juliana’s advice invaluable from pointing out work I might like, right down to help with hanging.
Their service is both personal and totally professional and I would highly recommend them just as much to an art connoisseur as to someone new to buying art.
The Exhibitions Team
I have had the pleasure of working with Debra and Julia from Cavaliero Finn for more than 10 years. They are both a real credit to the industry – professional, creative, attentive and always willing to go the extra mile for both their clients and their artists.
Collectively, they have ‘a good eye’ that ranges across different a number of media – painting and drawing, ceramics, glass, furniture, lighting and textiles.
They have a unique skill in being able to spot young and emerging artists. Moreover, they have an extraordinary talent in nurturing their artists, many of whom have subsequently gone on to be leaders in their fields.
They are an enterprising duo and I look forward to watching them continue to grow and develop their business.

We have just finished refurbishing our new house and have had a number of visitors commenting on how much they love the artwork and ceramics we have bought from you over the years. I thought I would just drop you a quick line to say thank you! You both have such an amazing eye for fantastic artists and pieces of work and each time I look at your website I hanker after more and more.

I was searching for a particular painting to present to my husband on our wedding day. I contacted Debra at Cavaliero Finn as I knew the gallery had exhibited works by Tony Beaver in the past. Debra was extremely approachable and friendly and most of all diligent in contacting the artist on my behalf and secured for me the perfect painting. I was absolutely thrilled. Giving it to my husband on the morning of our wedding made for one of our most treasured moments of the day. I cannot recommend the gallery highly enough. Thank you Debra so, so much, you have been wonderful.
