Favorite Art Supplies

This is one of the posts that I’ve been most excited to write about since I get questions about this all the time. Personally I love to receive tips from other artists on what works for them and what they like. Trying new supplies is such a joy for me and I am constantly mixing it up but here are some of my favorites that I use most often in the art that I sell.

If you are interested in hearing more detailed commentary on these items, I will be posting a Youtube video on this same topic sometime in the coming weeks.

I have linked the items to Amazon for reference but please be aware that sometimes you can find cheaper prices for these same items by shopping around at local arts & crafts stores and by using coupons.
