Gift Guide for Artists

As we celebrate another year coming to a close, I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite gifts for the artists in your life. From a distance, these items are simply pigments and tools, but really they are so much more. These gifts inspire. Opening a bottle of gold paint and dipping your brush into it for the first time, watching it sparkle on the bristles and suddenly having the urge to paint a sky full of stars! These simple tools can open up someone’s entire world that exists inside their head.

Below is a list of some of my personal favorites. I’ve included a corresponding $$$$ to identify their cost. These items are great to give on their own or together.
