I have been an artist all of my life. I like to use different mediums such as pastels, watercolor, and inks. I have just recently discovered Alcohol Ink, and I absolutely love the vibrant colors. My Alcohol Ink paintings are more abstract than anything I have ever painted. My alcohol ink paintings fall into two different categories: abstracts and abstract landscapes. The medium does not encourage realistic styling, which is why my alcohol ink landscapes look entirely different from my watercolors and pastels. It has forced me to become more abstract in my thinking, which has been a challenge. I am a bit of a control freak, and letting go isn't easy. It has been a challenge that I have enjoyed more than I thought I ever would.
