Our full collection has been purchased by the National Gallery of Art and the University of MN. We are premiering our latest creation around Wesley Channell’s work. He uses inspiration from masters like Van Gogh, Monet, Klimt, Picasso, and Dali. His canvas is the human body. In collaboration with his body painter they spend upwards of 10 hours painting the woman and then another 2-3 hours in the studio with the camera.
