Artist statement –
I started exploring alcohol ink just a couple of years ago and enjoy the way this medium flows, and does the unexpected. It is a fast and fun way to create. The ink makes a pattern, and then I decide where the next step is going to take me. Being a bit abstract with the brilliant colors, I always tell people that if they want to “happy up” a little spot in their home, all they need is a little alcohol ink art piece.
