Sugar Maple - Paint Gift Sets
Sugar Maple Palettes, paired with three beautiful colours, samples of st Armand handmade paper, and a #4 travel brush.
The palettes carefully gathered from the family’s sugar bush, these small pieces of wood come from the magical Inaatig in Ojibwe, Acer saccharum in Latin, Sugar Maple in English. The acreage the Beam family live on has been caretaken by their families since and before the treaties of the area were signed.
Part of caring for the trees is carefully removing some dry branches, the offcuts being used to make these palettes!

Raised by her artist parents, owner Anong Beam was taught from a young age how to harvest hematite pigment in the LaCloche mountain range near their home in M'Chigeeng First Nation on Manitoulin Island. Beam Paints draws on their early education in Indigenous pigment and expands it to encompass all paint traditions. A focus on high quality pigment content creates sublime artist materials, with plastic free packaging.
