To create Comfort and Purpose with a consistent story that focuses on FLOW
4A FLOW was founded with core values that are deeply focused on FLOW : FAMILY - LOVE - OPTIMISM - WELLNESS. We are FIGHTING LEUKEMIA OUR WAY!
This business venture came to us through some of our families most trying and dark times. When our son/nephew Julius was diagnosed at 2 ½ years old in 2014 with a rare form of Non-Curable Adult Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, we had a choice to crumble, or learn how to move forward with our new normal in a positive way to help him and others.
To FEEL 4A FLOW® is a philanthropic mindset and by endorsing the 4A FLOW brand is a lifestyle that UNITES FAMILIES and PEOPLE together when they may be faced with challenges, and also celebrating life. We hope everyone can join us with our Slogan and, FEEL 4A FLOW® reaching out to all people around the WORLD with our Brand.
Choosing 4A FLOW is a BRAND that gives back by donating significant TIME and PROCEEDS to charities and those in NEED.

IAN STEVENSON – Chief Operating Officer, Owner
Ian’s signature works focus on his hand drawn images that he then digitally paints. This is a process where he takes his hand sketched drawings, scans them into his computer, and then meticulously paints his Illustrations using Photoshop. Many are fooled by his almost photographic renderings that come to life with his unique color palate.
Ian strives to help others and wants his work to speak to his viewers, causing them to take a moment to stop in this busy world and think about each different meaning or story that he skillfully weaves within each piece. He has participated and donated multiple works to help a variety of fundraising organizations and events. Ian hopes he is able to provide others to tie to their FLOW, and remember what’s important in life… Family, Love, Optimism, and Wellness.
Ian earned an Associate’s degree in Computer Animation from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Ian has been working as a freelance Illustrator and Graphic Designer for the past 16 years. His work ranges in a variety of mediums from pencil, marker, and ink drawings, to oil and acrylic paintings.
