You can be an artist and create from anything with supplies as simple as a pencil, pen or sharpie and paint on anything from a napkin to a piece of cardboard.
For me, it means anything goes. I love experimenting and use a lot of different supplies to make my marks, paint/collage/draw on my ground or surface and tell my story. BUT, that doesn’t mean you have to. My goal is to show you my process with many options and techniques so that you will see it is okay to try different things to create your own unique art piece.
