The materials I use are artists’ quality archival oil paints, grounds, sealants and gessos. This ensures that the works  will stand the test of time. I use Schminke ‘Norma’ professional and Windsor and Newton oil paint which use the best quality pigments and all have excellent or very good lightfastness. The supports I use are either Belgian linen, cotton duck canvas or masonite board sized and primed with Schminke primer or Golden gesso.
