Created on a Whim

It all started on just that - a whim!

Colour & Whim is a petite local artist shop and creative studio located at the heart of Hawthorne, NJ.

It is Colour & Whim's goal to shed light on the creative community in Northern New Jersey. To celebrate the talent that is hidden all around us, we want to give local artists a space to display and sell their artwork. We also want to encourage creativity to the people in the area by sharing our skills & talents through specialized studio classes - bringing technique, exploration and fun back to art!

It is our hope to bring some Colour & Whim to the town!  


Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
