UPDATE: We are taking online orders, but they will likely take a few extra days to fulfil, as we continue to operate with a skeleton crew.  Thank you for your patience, and stay safe, everyone. ♥️

Introduction To

Artist Set

Our 5th collaboration with Associate Artist Emma Colbert.

'This set is designed for those wanting to steer their work out of the monochrome and into colour. It will help you see more values in your highlights, midtones and shadows. Combined with your existing collection this set will ensure you have the right shades and tints for every lighting.'​

Blendable

Because we use the best ingredients, our pastels have superior blending capabilities, used wet, or dry.

Soft and Smooth

With careful use of binder, our pastels are often described as 'smooth as butter', and need no encouragement to leave their mark.

Highly Pigmented​

We use a high percentage of traditional pigments for the deepest colouration.

Lightfast

Colour that stands the test of time.

Handmade

Made, labelled and packed completely by hand. No extrusion.

What If? Part II

“What if?” can lead to a stronger painting. We hear it all the time… “Just because it is in the photo doesn’t mean we have to paint it that way.”
