Artist/Painter

I have used Princeton brushes for nearly a decade. As a professional artist in both studio and plein air, I use a variety of materials. After finishing a painting session, I review the brushes I’ve chosen from my arsenal, virtually every painting has utilized one or more of Princeton’s brushes.
