Beam Paints is the result of a multi-generational love of pigment, paint, colour, and innovation. Maker Anong Beam was raised by my artist parents, Carl Beam and Ann Beam, and 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 her early educations 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.
Lightfast pigments, tree sap, gum arabic, and Manitoulin honey, blend together to 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. Her watercolours are shaped into paintstones, her version of a half-pan, before being wrapped in beeswaxed canvas. All pans are packaged in slices of cedar and birch offcuts from an Indigenous sustainable lumber operation.
