Beam Paints is the result of a multi generational love of pigment, paint, colour, and innovation. Anong Beam raised by artist parents Carl Beam and Ann Beam, was taught from a young age how to harvest hematite pigment in the lacloche mountain range near her home in M'chigeeng First Nation on Manitoulin Island. Beam Paints draws on these early educations in Indigenous pigment and expands it to encompass all paint traditions. A focus on high quality pigment content creates sublime artist materials.
Lightfast pigments, tree sap, gum arabic, and Manitoulin honey, create a handmade saturated colour that is a joy to paint with, from thick stripes to fine washes and details, quality is evident in every stroke. Our watercolour pans are packaged in slices of cedar and birch that are offcuts from an Indigenous sustainable lumber operation. Our pans are then wrapped in biodegradable wrappers.
