With two parents who were self-taught artists, I always thought the gift of art skipped me. In 2017, when I was in my late 60’s mind you, I started acrylic rock painting to share in the community. I figured I could paint a rock with a word on it and hide it around town!! As my designs evolved, I was commissioned to paint wedding rocks on my favorite white stones from Santorini, Greece.
It wasn’t until 2019 that I discovered and fell in love with the art of alcohol inks. Alcohol inks are fluid and are moved with air, such as a hand blower/puffer, an airbrush, or a compact hairdryer. I have also conquered the difficult technique of painting with these inks using a paintbrush. This work would usually be reactivated with alcohol, not water. However, all my work is sealed with an archival, UV protector.
