It began in an art studio a decade ago. At the time, our father had been painting for over 40 years, and in the corner of his studio was a graveyard of sorts where old artist palettes were put to rest, none of which proved to be valuable enough for further use. Some of the art palettes were heavy or awkward to hold, causing pain in the hand, thumb, and wrist. Others lacked functionality or were not made well. As is true for many of you, the answer for him involved a trip to the lumber yard, a jig saw, sand paper, and a free afternoon. With that, the design for a new artist palette was created, and the seeds for New Wave were planted.
The idea of New Wave grew for years as he invented new palette shapes, around his three point design, for his own use. With our combined efforts a simple idea became reality as new shapes were created and old shapes were refined around his original three point design, with emphasis on comfort, quality and functionality.
New Wave was inspired by one individual's dedication to the fine arts for over half a century, and his enthusiasm and zest for the arts resonates in our philosophy.
