I began painting in acrylics during high school, and have stuck with it ever since. While I have dabbled in watercolor and oils, I always come back to acrylics. Acrylics are versatile and vibrant. It is low-maintenance medium. I love the ability to add texture to paintings, and the fast drying time makes for quick work.
I also teach painting classes. These are 2-hour workshops where we focus on the basics of painting, and how you can easily (and inexpensively) start painting at home.
