Our Story

Life of Colour was founded in 2018 with a single product. We have grown as a company with over 40 product lines across pens and art accessories selling to retail and wholesale customers in Australia and New Zealand.

We have high engagement over our social media platforms with over 50,000 followers across Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Pinterest and average over 50,000 monthly unique visitors on our website.

We are passionate about art and the many health and wellbeing benefits creative expression brings to our lives.

In this fast-paced, modern world in which we live, we are over-worked, over-connected and overstressed. Many of us are looking for ways to slow down, opt out and focus on the things that truly matter, but we don’t know where to start.

Art has the power to heal. It brings us joy and fulfilment, relieves stress and anxiety, and keeps our minds healthy and happy.

At Life of Colour we want to make artistic and creative activities accessible to everyone – to bring more joy, light and colour into their lives. To help them slow down, breathe and recalibrate.

For us, it’s never about the end creation. You don’t need to be a talented artist to reap the benefits. Everyone can tap into that euphoric feeling of ease, flow and freedom that comes from the process of creative expression.
