A Word From the Author:
Just like stocking a pantry, furnishing your art room or studio requires preparation. When I was first getting serious about my art, I bought every supply I could get my hands on --the more, the merrier. Or so I thought. Then I got kinda overwhelmed. I spent a lot of time playing with each and every supply to figure out what did what and variety of effects I could achieve. It was trial by error, and I made ugly messes. These days I try to minimize my supplies slightly, but oh I can't help myself. I still adore trying new things.

So, as you can imagine, I have tons of media in my studio. I think of all my supplies, media and substrates like a giant spice rack. In other words, I don't necessarily use every single item every single time. I tend to pick and choose judiciously as I work through an individual piece." --Mary Beth Shaw
