Judi Pettite started BioHue 2006. Engaged by the promise of artist colors from natural pigments, she’s been on the alchemical journey ever since. Judi forages purchases or grows the materials for the art materials as mindfully and sustainably as possible. The inks and watercolors are made from the fewest ingredients possible allowing the beauty and personality of the source material to come through.
