It is the transformative experience when creating that I am attracted to. Working predominantly with alcohol inks, I am continually humbled and surprised by the free-flowing energy and movement of these vibrant pigments as I apply the ink on a variety of surfaces. As colour and beauty are sisters, this creative process becomes for me an exercise of the heart. The alcohol moves the colour often without benefit of brush leaving behind “an intricate play of presence and absence where light and colour embrace” (J. O’Donahue).
To complete the art, I recondition used frames and hand cut the mats. Retired and residing in south London Ontario, I am continually delighted when mystery visits the art room!
