We have been asked a few times recently, why HooperShaw?!
Clearly we are both Hoopers so where does the Shaw come from?! Let me tell you a little story...
As children, bearing in mind there's a few years difference, we were all obsessed with the film Jaws! As a nod to our childhood - being siblings on a little business mission together - we decided we should use the names of the characters/actors in our favourite film!
Enter Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw! AKA Matt Hooper and Quint!
HooperQuint didn't fit the bill...plus the logo HQ would have been a bit...you know. Quint was also eaten alive so we decided to use Shaw...much better ring to it!
Hence the name of our little business!
And now you know...do a few of Daniel's paintings mean a bit more now?!
