"After years of trying different brushes, I have found Trekell brushes meet the needs of professional artists with high-quality bristles at an affordable price. As I've gotten to know the company, I've observed how they take extra care of their customers, put out only quality products, and go the extra mile to serve their vibrant artist community. I also love their gessoed panels and especially like their smooth eggshell surface texture and absorbency. They even take care to properly treat the backside of their panels which is rare in the art supply world. So whether you are interested in brushes or panels, I highly recommend their products."
