The Alcohol Ink Workshop is designed to introduce and familiarize artists with the delightful properties and effects that are unique to the medium.  Participants will learn how to achieve effects that are both stunning and surprising, particularly when applied to Yupo, the ground of choice for Alcohol Ink artists.  Yupo is a non-absorbent, plastic ground that takes a bit of getting used to.  It is best approached with a relaxed hand and an open spirit of collaboration.  As Bond would say, ‘stirred, not shaken’. There will be ample time to try new techniques and practice what works for you and brings you joy.

The Workshop will not cover the basics of painting like color wheel dynamics. or the fundamentals of design and composition.  Instead, we will take you where you are and teach you how to apply your artistic talents and creativity in a new medium.

Artist’s Statement

Experimentation is my touchstone.  I work in Alcohol Ink and watercolor for serendipity and sparkle and in acrylic for its adaptability to abstraction and synergy with other media.  My style is impressionistic and simple, leaning increasingly toward the abstract.  The experience of creating art has been a lifelong source of peace and tranquility in my busy life.
