In the early 1990s when the Young British Artists were making waves, Carole Binnie, a mild-mannered, retired, primary-school teacher in West Yorkshire, was making a few waves herself.

Undeterred she decided to start her own. Her plan on how to make Art, in all its glorious forms, available to a wider general audience, began to take shape.
