Our Why

Canvas in Common is a non-judgemental space to share the absolute joy that art brings.

Ultimately, we want to create a collective of like-minded people. Sharing their art skills, learning and creations.

Our What

We use this space to share positivity through the magic that art can bring to anyone’s life.

Life is too fast and busy, sometimes we need to slow down and enjoy creating. Everyone can experience mental and physical health struggles at some points in their life, so we are helping to spread the awareness that that is ok. You are not defined by it, it just makes you stronger.

People say that not everyone can make art, but we believe that everyone is the master of something creative.

Therefore, we have created courses and articles which don’t just teach, they inspire you.

We wholeheartedly encourage your self expression, growth and creativity.

And most importantly we genuinely want to hear from you, our community is open to all.

Our Who:

Bec Davies – The Art Girl

Bec is an experienced art teacher who loves working with people of all ages and sharing the joys of fluid art with them.

A successful artist, she has sold her artwork in person at markets and online for years.

She is community minded and has donated her works to many fundraising events.

Bec started doing fluid art daily when she became qualified in social science and started working in emergency services.

She found each day stressful at work, with art becoming her relaxing escape at home.

Bec has put her everything into this course to ensure that beginner artists get the absolute best.

Shes passionate about helping people reach their potential and be apart of a supportive community, and that is what Canvas In Common is all about.

Nuria Palat – The Photography Girl

Nuria, Bec and Chris met through living in share house together by the beach. Nuria has travelled the world and currently is travelling Australia.

Nuria lives life spontaneously and for the moment. She says yes to everything and makes magic happen. During COVID-19 while having fun on photography projects, Bec and Nuria started doing a lot of art together.

Then the idea to film an epic painting course was born and Nuria brought it to life with her incredible eye and attention to detail. Not to mention her meticulous designing ability, branding, videography and editing skills.
