Travel in Colour

Colour

One of the most gratifying steps in my artistic process, from blank to finished canvas, occurs even before I have begun. 

Standing in front of my shelves containing a myriad of paint tubes and imagining which colours I will mix is my inspiration for the day ahead.

The combinations are infinite, and as I make my choices, I am already looking at colours not chosen and formulating a plan for those on another day.


Landscapes

I draw inspiration from so much that surrounds and is already a part of me:

The sights and colours in my neighbourhood; the landscapes that envelope my city; memories of colour and light seen from years of traveling abroad; and in creations I admire, brought to life by my fellow artists.

100% Original

Each piece of fluid art is entirely original and simply cannot be duplicated.

Even if I wanted to replicate a piece that brought me immense satisfaction, I could not copy that piece exactly – ever again. I can pull identical colours from the shelf and mix them with the same proportions, but the process that brings about fluid art will be different regardless of my intent.

The colours will come together and move across the canvas in their own way no matter how I might strive to control it.

Around the world and back again.

We absolutely love our artwork!

The colors are even more vibrant in person. The colors wrap all the way around the sides and looks very polished.
