This week, I’d like to introduce you to Nick Peters the creative force behind, Canvas & Canvas.
For five years, Nick operated Canvas & Canvas as a wholesale business, supplying some of the countries best boutique hotels, resorts, apartment buildings and offices. As his business grew, friends and family kept asking Nick to help them with affordable hand painted artwork for their homes. These were all people who had a passion for artwork but may not yet be able to afford the high price tags that traditionally come with works from local galleries.
With this vision, Nick formed an online gallery that could provide high-end original hand painted artwork to anyone and have it delivered to there doorstep, worldwide. By limiting each design to only 99 pieces produced, Canvas & Canvas not only ensures originality but also instills more value in each piece.
This is a day in Nick’s life.
