We are Brandon & Ewaniki Hawkins, husband & wife team married not only in love, but also in our passion for mentoring and legacy building. Between us, we have over 18 years of mastery in art, events management and education.
We launched in January 2016 and have been bringing our unique brand of art appreciation into private and public spaces ever since.
"As the majority of our attendees admitted that art did not come easy, Brandon was able to reassure and encourage everyone to do their best. At the end of the event, many attendees commented that this was one of the best events that we had in a long time. That really speaks to the effort that Brandon and Soul Palette put towards providing us that unique experience."

Chief Detail Officer
There was a time when I didn't think of myself as an artist. I would keep my drawings tucked away in my sketchbooks because I didn't believe I was good enough. But I had passion and Soul Palette helped me use that passion to grow into the multidisciplinary artist that I am today. I'm a stronger painter, designer, and teacher thanks to the opportunities provided by Soul Palette, and now I'm using the skills I've learned to help others all over the world.
