A lot of things changed in 2020 for us and with it came a whole new set of perspectives and family goals. Tait changed his focus from corporate marketing to his personal art and family.
Our prints are a visual diary of sorts. Tait is surrounded by his subjects and each piece is inspired by his personal connection to our environment. From the plants that he sits with daily in our house, foraged flowers from Christine and our boys, to the surfers who inspire him. Tait spent years studying and working on his technical skills as a painter and illustrator, but now what brings him the most joy is not having to make a perfect mark. Gestural, intuitive, lights and darks. His goal is to make art that emotes a feeling and inspires, but that is also accessible to everyone. We hope to bring happiness, laughter, love, kindness and a bit of rebellion to your home.
Tait works out of his studio, in our home in Leucadia, CA. He grew up in York, ME and Portsmouth, NH and obtained his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art where he studied Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking and Design. He also studied in Florence, Italy where he completed an intensive painting and drawing study that solidified his passion and love for creating art. He spent the greater part of the past 20 years providing art and creative direction for brands such as Capitol Records, Vans, Judith, Burton Snowboards and Reef. With his focus now only on creating artwork for our studio, we hope to bring his pieces into your home. They are made with love, and we really, really hope you enjoy them.
