An Avian Muse
The crows used on the labels were created by local artist Nicola Tager.
Tager has been featured throughout the Seattle area in many galleries and shows. She utilizes a unique style, starting each painting by first doing a layer of orange on the canvas.
Jean Claude saw Tager's work displayed in a show and contacted her about contributing to his new project. Five paintings were created custom for Le Bec Fin and thus began the crow as a symbol for this brand.
Tager's work is not limited to crows - painting people and places just as beautifully as she does animals. Her work will be prominent in all marketing and branding materials for Le Bec Fin.
