I work with acrylic paints. Acrylic gives me the ability to use very thick or very thin paint. This allows me to work very quickly and also to go back into my work. They are non-toxic and thin with water. All in all, acrylic paints are a very flexible medium. I use a range of tools to manipulate the paints; everything from brushes to all kinds of supplies, spatulas, etc. I use whatever will communicate my vision. At the present we have more material to use but it’s the same need, the same desire to express oneself. This is no different than it has always been.
