Alcohol Ink Paintings and Mixed Media
I create my pieces using a variety of media. It all depends on the effect I’m seeking. Two years ago I discovered a relatively new medium! ALCOHOL INKS! I was completely hooked from day one. This medium is so fascinating and fun to play with. It's gotten to the point that I can’t stop exploring and discovering the marvelous way
the inks move.
To me it has become a mission to share this delightful medium and techniques with others. I am fulfilling this mission by exhibiting my pieces, teaching both artists and non-artists how fun creating with alcohol inks can be!
The inspiration for my art comes from the fabulous nature that surrounds me. I feel beyond lucky to live in the Upper Peninsula, seeing Lake Superior in all of it's splendor right outside of my studio window. I also am inspired by the peaceful, quiet time at camp and being off the grid. I don’t want to make a photographic represen-
tation of my inspiration; rather, I strive to visually show a feeling of the environment I'm experiencing at the moment.
