“If the eyes are the windows to the soul, we endeavor to express your nature with a creative spark that tells your story."
Our Story Began with Art & Love
Who We are
Dr. See, CJ Thomason, and Rococo, Irina Dragomir-Thomason, are two young artists who met in Vancouver Canada while CJ was shooting a TV show in 2008. CJ has been making eyewear since 2006, has created over 10,000 custom frames. Irina, a graduate of Emily Carr University of Art + Design, began collaborating with CJ immediately on his artworks when they met. From photography, to stories, to paintings, to eyewear, and now children, everything they do is an expression of their passion as artists and their love of life.
Letter to Theo van Gogh, c. September 1885
If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere. God, nature, and art are one." - Vincent Van Gogh
My First Perfect Frame - Santos Rosewood
My first perfect frame was hand carved out of santos rosewood in November in West Texas. It took 30 hours to carve and was one of the most pivotal moments in my art career where I truly believed I could achieve anything
one face at a time
I have tried eyewear on over 100,000 faces in cities all over the world. I am proud to have made eyewear for presidents of countries and minimum wage employees living paycheck to paycheck. Everyone deserves a crown.
Rome wasn't built in a day. A journey of a million miles begins with one step. The wood glasses I am making today have cost me over 50,000 hours and millions of investment to develop and I'm honored to bring something special to the eyewear industry.
Romanian Born Artist Rococo
Irina Dragomir-Thomason, known in the art world as Rococo, immigrated to Vancouver at the age of 9, leaving behind the challenges of communist Romania. Growing up amidst bread lines and power outages, she learned the profound value of freedom and developed an unwavering faith in her dreams. Despite the stifling atmosphere of communism, the idea of pursuing a career as an artist remained a distant dream. Now residing in Texas with her husband and family, Irina is determined to cultivate her identity as an artist, embracing the creative freedom she once yearned for and nurturing her passion for art in her new home.
