The creative edge to life and work, through art and writing
Colour and Quill celebrates the creative edge in life, whether practical, whimsical or purely aesthetic, through imaginative changes to everyday situations.
It is about living the creative life, specifically through visual arts and creative writing, in all its varied forms. It is about claiming a creative space and wrapping it around your life like a quilt of love.
Do you need a painting to brighten your wall? Or do you want the whole wall to be a painting?
Do you want a three-page article for your magazine? Or a three-line haiku for your loved one? Or a book to enrich your life?
Contact Colour and Quill and let's get creative!
