My art embraces the beauty of nature. I use alcohol inks to represent the vibrancy and uniqueness of our natural world. Colour, shapes and movement play a key role. The unpredictability and fluid nature of the alcohol inks combined with the vibrant colours provide individuality to each piece. The quick drying time of the inks encourages spontaneity and an organic method of painting. During the painting process, my paintings are constantly changing and morphing. That’s part of the intrigue of working with alcohol inks.
Art has always been an important part of my life. As a child I could often be found painting, drawing or doodling. Over the years, I have experimented with numerous mediums yet only when time permitted while working and raising a family. Since retirement in 2015, I have more time to focus on my art. In 2016, I discovered alcohol inks finding them to be a curious and amusing medium to use. I’ve been sharing and selling my work since July 2017 when I participated in my first art walk which was the three-day Whyte Avenue Art Walk in Edmonton, Alberta.
