triditional artist


I consider myself to be a traditional artist, not a folk art artist. Please comment.

See example:

I am a traditional artist working on canvas and my mediums are oil, acrylic and watercolor paper.

I am a traditional artist working on canvas, and my mediums are oil, acrylic, and watercolor paints.


1) You should always put a comma before and or but when the clause following it could be its own sentence.


2) I am a fan of the oxford comma -- the last comma in a list.  It clarifies that it is a list of paint types and not a new kind of hybrid medium, acrylic and watercolor.


3)  I think instead of 'paper' you meant to write 'paints.'
