We had the good fortune of connecting with Colin DuCharme and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Colin, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk taking is scary, but important in putting yourself out there and bringing your dream to fruition. For us, risk-taking for us had meant putting ourselves and our designs out there, not knowing if they’d be accepted or favored. In the end,

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We’ve always gravitated towards natural materials – ink and paper. Wood and metal. We wanted to keep things simple and original to the source. We love being able to make these natural elements into a beautiful piece of art. Although it hasn’t always been easy and there are long hours involved, it it worth it for those that appreciate and love our work.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Downtown Denton is a favorite spot of ours! It’s where we met and both attended college. We’d spend some time at some of our favorite outdoor bars including Harvest House and Eastside, following that up by dinner at Barley and Board, and finish off the night getting ice cream at Beth Marie’s.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We’d love to thank those that have supported our art and what we’ve been inspired by – biblical references, beautiful things in our day to day life, and those that we love. Our family serves as a sounding board, our friends serve as support and as a husband and wife team we serve as a support system for bringing sketches and ideas to life.
