Resource Guide

Painting Supplies:

This is YOUR course and it's intended to help you create your painting practice. Essential to this is for you to use what you have and enjoy curating new supplies that will enhance your personal style. I will not be providing resource links for supplies I'm using; please enjoy using what you have! (If you have any questions about resources used in the demonstration videos, I do offer a supply guide on my web site here.)


Here's where you'll find insights that have helped me in the past. I'm an avid reader and have gleaned so much from diverse sources. I've divided this resource list into two sections. Section one focuses on books on artistic mindset specifically, while section two offers some whole-life resources.
