Colour like no other

Since my Grandfather’s time, my family have been immersed in colour. We are totally committed to providing Artists and Printmakers with the best tools for the job. The results have inspired artists the world over – providing a long lasting testament to their skill & creativity and reflecting rather favourably on us too!
