Your manifesto / rules to live by / motto:

Blink, breathe through nose, don’t squint.


How would you describe your work if you left out all the boring parts?

Nothing I do feels like work. Honestly! I wholly enjoy my job.


Pen, pencil or stylus?

All three!

CRETACOLOR MONOLITH AQUARELLE COLORED PENCIL SET OF 12

This set of twelve bright and beautiful solid pigment pencils pack a triple punch. Use them for fine or broad drawing, then just add water (carefully!) to blend with the subtle power of a watercolor artiste. 

A solid cylinder of water-soluble pigment wrapped in the thinnest lacquer coating, the Aqua Monolith Pencil delights artists with its ability to create broad and fine strokes with a single pencil. Virtually waste-free, Aqua Monolith’s shavings can be dissolved in water and used as paint.
