The Acrylic Gallery


Acrylic Paint has been my most tried and true medium, as it is fairly inexpensive, very versatile and easily obtainable. It is the medium I was first introduced to as a child in elementary school, proceeding to my advanced art education in the I. E. P. Program for Exceptional Students during middle and high school. I have had many successes in this medium, and acrylic paint is excellent for showcasing my exuberance for living!

I find acrylic very adaptable for my work on the wide variety of surfaces I enjoy painting, from more traditional stretched canvas to the veritable plethora of materials I scavenge from various sources. I used to say,

“If it is not nailed down, I will paint it!”

However, I have changed that statement to,

“Even if it is nailed down, I will paint it!”.
