The beauty of Alcohol Inks

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Well, here we are in the middle of summer and I've been busy developing several new classes one of which is... alcohol inks!

Actually I am going to have several alcohol ink classes starting with an INTRO TO ALCOHOL INKS WORKSHOP. In this two hour class, we will paint two 6X6 inch ceramic tiles and an 8x10 matted yupo painting.

My first INTRO TO ALCOHOL INKS WORKSHOP is this Sunday and it's sold out, so that's exciting! It's a smaller class size than I usually offer, this will allow for a lot more one on one guidance and a more relaxing pace for me.

Here are a few photos of some of the things I've been doing with alcohol inks. I will post photos of the class too!


For this Yellow-Orange Pear, I used a small paintbrush and dabbed my colors on!

Letting go

Alcohol inks are mesmerizing in the way they flow and change right before your eyes, but don't fall in love too quickly because your artwork will continually change! Let it go!

It's okay to blow it!

Yes we literally blow the ink around! You've gotta be quick and don't get dizzy!

Online class coming soon!

In the meantime, I would love to have you at one of my public in-person classes offered monthly at Parkway Chateau in Kenosha (the next INTRO TO ALCOHOL INKS WORKSHOP is scheduled for Sunday, August 19th from 1 to 3 pm.) OR, you can book you own private INTRO TO ALCOHOL INKS WORKSHOP with a minimum of 6 people, and I'll bring the studio to your home or office or wherever!
