As for so many people around the world, my home and the immediate surroundings became the center of my life in 2020.

When faced with no where to go but where I was, I found that it was full to the brim with possibilities. I fell in love with all that was on offer especially the colors and textures of the treasures in the natural world.  Since then I have learned how to make ink from the plants, trees and flowers that grow in the area and it has become a new way of expressing myself. I am bewitched... finding a way to meld together the countless things I love about life and then placing them in one tiny bottle at a time. My show (pictured above) in August of 2020 resembled an alchemist’s cabinet.
“Natural ink is a condensed landscape in a little bottle”, Jason Logan.

The artwork is that I created from the natural inks I am making. The whole process from start to finish takes a calendar year with each season producing very different palettes of color. I have been recording the journey on my blog if you are interested in seeing what the process looks like. 

The artwork is currently about the individual colors and how I interact with them. Each has a very different vibration that I first feel through my eyes but then it connects with my spirit and emotions. At first I didn't want to mix the inks but as I get to understand them individually I have found it is natural for them to interact.
