"I've tried so many different brush brands over the years and it's tough to find anything that holds up, while still remaining delicate enough to maintaining the level of consistency and precision I'm looking for. Trekell brushes really deliver in both detail and durrability and I finally feel confident that I can rely on brushes and supplies that aren't going to waste my money and time."

Discovering Trekell was a godsend. Not only are their brushes incredibly priced (for brush destroyers like me) but the quality is SO great.
"Trekell brushes provide the artist with the highest quality brushes at affordable prices. A rare combination in artist materials. A great brush collection for the serious artists."
“We have been using Trekell Brushes for the past 10 years. They are perfect for everything we paint! For the tiniest details in our paintings the 5/0 script and round Taklon brushes have excellent precision and for filling in areas on large installations and murals we love using the 1 inch wash brush (which we have nicknamed ‘cool-guy’) or the 20 round Taklon."
"I had seen artists using Trekell brushes for quite a few years but didn't try the them until recently. From the first marks I laid down I was sold. I'm really rough on my brushes and they hold up to my abuse. I've used the golden taklons with watercolor, acrylic and oil and they're very cooperative. It's an honor to be part of the Trekell Pro Team."
"I tried Trekell products a couple years ago on my quest to find materials that withstood more than a couple of paintings' worth of use. I actually remember the day I first used them, because comparatively, they blew the other brushes out of the water. Most everything that wasn't Trekell I threw away. I don't know what sort of wizardry these products are made with, but I will now and forever be a loyal fan and avid supporter. They truly make my art-life easier."
“I began using Trekell brushes many years ago and haven't looked back. At first it was because the price made them very affordable but the more I used them, the more I loved how they worked. I soon became attached to the Golden Taklons, which are what my sets are composed of, and I knew I could depend on them for the effects I desired when painting. It has been an honor working with Trekell over the years and watching the company grow and I am honored to have a small part in what the company is doing."
Greg “Craola” Simkins was born in 1975 in Torrance California, just south of Los Angeles. He grew up with a menagerie of animals including a number of rabbits, which often emerge in his paintings. He began drawing at the early age of three and was inspired by various cartoons and books. Some standout books that still find their way into his art are Watership Down by Richard Adams, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis and The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster.
