Studio art
 
We use high quality materials so that your art will last as long as possible-- conservation starts from the beginning!
 
Suggested media: oil paints, acrylics, charcoal, pastels, pencil, pen and ink. Give us a challenge and request historical techniques such as gilding, egg tempera, and grisaille with oil glazing. Even perishable media are a go-- pumpkin carvings are a favorite.
 
See the images below, all artwork made by Katherine Langdon, for inspiration.
