Welcome to my Website!

I have been involved in many forms of art in the past, but nothing surpasses the joy for me of Alcohol Ink Painting.  As you can see in my images, alcohol inks are vibrant, almost like stained glass.  Applied to nonabsorbent surfaces, such as Yupo Paper and Ceramic Tile, they are quite interactive and require me to "go with the flow" of the inks.  The inks and I are on a journey together.  It is a very creative and exciting process.  I am also a photographer and digital artist, and you can see both of my techniques on Instagram.  In fact, the image you see below is the last image posted on Instagram.

I teach Alcohol Ink Art at Chintinimi Activity Center, 2601 NW Tyler, Corvallis, OR 97330, Phone 541-766-6958. I alternate Level 1 and 2:

Fall and Spring: Level 1. Learn all about the magic of alcohol inks. Alcohol Inks, when painted on a nonabsorbent surface such as Yupo Paper and Ceramic Tile interact with each other, and you will learn how to dance with them. No art experience necessary. With the spirit of play and curiosity, you will be amazed at what comes out of your art journey.

Winter and Summer: Level 2: pre-requisite: Level 1 or equivalent. Balancing spontaneity and control is our goal here. You will learn techniques on how to assist the inks in your creative process, without losing the joyful nature of the inks themselves.

Commissions available. Call, text or email with details and I will get back to you with a quote.

Also available for hire for workshops out of town. Contact me with details.
