In 2014, Prue Acton OBE and Merv Moriarty OAM, Directors of Moriarty Colour Pty Ltd began a project to promote and licence products for modern colour education, colour tools and digital colour management.

Prue worked with her partner Merv Moriarty, artist, art educator, founder of Flying Art School (now Flying Arts) and author, to revolutionise colour. Merv perfected the Moriarty Colour Wheel, bringing together light and pigment into one system, one simple code, unlike any other system.

The world of colour is now accessible to everybody who loves and works with colour, thanks to the Moriarty Colour Wheel. Perfect colour mixing and matching and harmonious colour combinations are only a few steps away.

Moriarty Colour Wheel

The Moriarty Colour Wheel creates a completely new way of thinking about colour mixing and complementary colours. Over each wheel is placed a transparent plastic disc on which there is a curved grid that delivers the artist countless combinations for colour mixing. The resulting colours will be beautiful and harmonious.

The Moriarty Colour Wheel offers groundbreaking possibilities for artists and painters, being uniquely able to deal with both RGB and CMY formats (no black). It is the world's leading colour wheel design, having already won an award for the best new product at the Frankfurt Art Fair in 2018.
