How everything started

Hi, I’m Frank from Granada (a lovely city in Spain), and this is our story sprinkled with paint and passion! My journey from Spain to San Francisco introduced me to Ziwen, my wife and a true painting enthusiast. My own artistic adventures were... let’s just say, less than stellar. Early attempts? Total disasters—think smudged canvases tossed in the trash.

We later settled in Ireland, where I dove into the corporate world. It paid the bills but hardly sparked joy. Cue the life-changing magic of paint by numbers. It promised simple joy: match numbers to colors and voila! Despite receiving a package that looked like it survived a duel, I gave it a shot. Armed with acrylics and a playlist, I found myself lost in painting, hours flying by. This wasn't just art; it was my escape, our couple’s therapy on canvas, and soon enough, a shared obsession with Ziwen.

Yet, not all was rosy. The market’s kits were a gamble—wrinkled canvases, mismatched paints, you name it. Could we do better? Spoiler: Yes, yes we could.

Caught up in the paint-by-numbers craze, I envisioned the perfect kit—a painter’s dream down to the last detail. Alongside my wife, we deep-dived into the world of adult painting kits. From exploring the best blend of canvas materials and mastering pigment saturation to selecting the right brushes and securing image licenses, we crafted our ideal product.

Launching our online store in the U.S. was just the beginning. With minimal initial investment thanks to the existing market familiarity, our store hit the ground running. Quality products, exceptional customer care, and positive word of mouth fueled our growth, turning a family project into a global business. Now, selling in over 20 countries and leading the industry in the US and EU, Canvas by Numbers stands as a testament to where passion and dedication can take you.

What is Paint By Numbers?

Do you remember color by numbers coloring books when you were a little child? Paint by numbers kits are the same concept, but expanded on canvas and include high-quality acrylic paints and brushes. The canvas is divided into numbered sections that match the numbers on your premixed paints. Some even say Leonardo DaVinci used this method to teach his students! With this simple process and our easy instruction guide, you can create beautiful masterpieces that mimic the real artist’s work.

Socially responsible

At Canvas by Numbers, we believe that we are selling "much more" than a product. Each painting sold represents hours of tranquility, peace, and entertainment, contributing to a better mental balance and a therapeutic activity for the vast majority of people. During 2020 Covid outbreak, we have collaborated with town councils in small towns providing a fun pastime to our elders who have found in painting a refuge from the unfortunate situation we have experienced. Painting not only favors the preservation of cognitive functions, but it is a practical activity to combat Alzheimer's.
