Painting with alcohol inks is amazing! (Yes, I am a biased art instructor…but I am passionate about art!) The vibrant colors and the spontaneous nature of the inks create paintings that blur the lines of abstraction and realism. The process itself is metaphorical – all of the best laid plans are subject to change – be flexible – enjoy the moment!


Animals are one of my favorite subjects for ink paintings as nature provides an endless variety of color and naturalistic backgrounds are perfect for the tangled tendrils of ink.

This fall I’d like to create 50 NEW animal-themed paintings and a 7" x 7" photo book of the collection. The paintings will be small (4" x 6") but framed and matted (to 5" x 7") to make reasonably priced gifts. The book will be a first for me and I'm very excited about it! The 50 day time frame allows the paintings to be completed in November for delivery in early December. 

At this point, none of the new paintings have been created (images are shown to demonstrate my art). I am asking for your help with materials, framing, and print/card costs. For your support, here are the rewards offered:
