Safran House is a collaborative between Colby Smith, born in Cleveland, Ohio and Stephen Tschopp, born in Basel, Switzerland. They live on their small art-farm in Camerons, on New Zealand's West Coast. Stephen is currently focusing on art prints and postcards featuring elements from the natural environment with a contemporary, at times quirky, take on geopolitical developments taking place in the modern world. A large portion of Colby's time is spent as a practicing tattoo artist running her own studio. She is currently refocusing her attention on her fine art practice painting nature-studies in oil and acrylics and collaborating with Stephen on illustration projects for their serigraphic works.
