About Us

Inspired by Vincent van Gogh

Our name is inspired by the creative work of Vincent van Gogh, and Starry Night is probably our favorite painting ever created. Van Gogh put himself into his work in a way that is memorable and easily recognized. His works have a directness about them that strips away any veneer of pretension and they get right to the heart and soul of the subjects he painted. We strive to create great works for our clients that are also memorable, hard to forget, and get right to the heart of what you are trying to accomplish.
