Art supplies I love using

When I started my first ‘Creative Rebels’ art class, I realized that I have some art-specific knowledge I can share with people.

 It took some time for me to figure out what art materials I like to use in my work, so for those of you who love doodling and sketching etc. here is a list of products that I love to work with (these are genuine recommendations, and I don’t get any financial reward for mentioning them!):

‘The Key to Freedom’: my new collection of silk scarves

Keep the inner child alive

Keep the inner child alive

I think it’s important to try and hold the idea of a child’s free soul close to you and never let it go.
