Art Materials

What I love to use and recommend…

One of the biggest questions that I receive is “Which tools do you use”? so I thought it would be helpful to build a page dedicated to my tools and where to get them.

Remember, an artist’s tool is only as good as the artist’s skills and dedication to the craft. Great tools won’t make a great artist, but practice will and great tools are a bonus to that skill. However, skilled artists can use rudimentary tools and still produce masterworks. Don’t break your bank on the expensive tools, take the time to practice your skills!

Below is a list of tools for various mediums and projects I work in! If you have any questions, feel free to send me a note.
