Welcome to my resources page. There are as many tools to paint a picture or build a piece of furniture as there are ways to make them. Here you will find information on the tools/materials I use when painting or wood working, what works well for me. You will also find information on studio/shop setup, tricks of the trades, events/exhibition, commissions, and workshops. If you'd like to receive bi-monthly emails please subscribe to my newsletter.  If you have any questions or are seeking further information please email me.
