Curated Art Supplies


In my super out of breath video below:



I mention some supplies that I thought would be a good reflection of my own practise, PLUS encouraging for another artist to receive.


My key takeaways from this exercise:

  • Curating a small selection helped me be clear about what supplies are super important to me (whether I included them [an angle brush] or couldn't [acrylic paint])

  • Curating a selection with someone's circumstance in mind (travel), also made me think harder about what I was doing.

  • Things that are important to me, in my art practise, whether in action or aspirationally is sketching, and having a place to put ideas!

  • I really do love bright colours

  • I challenged myself with the bag (painting on fabric), and the "deadline" aspect of having it ready, ensured I did it, and couldn't agonise over the mistakes (the big splotch on top ;)

  • It forced me to get creative a create a little palette, something which will now flow into my own practise as I dabble with outside painting more

I cannot recommend trying this enough! It doesn't have to be a gift, but I do think that the art of gift giving is a super satisfying one!
