STILL LIFE

Artist Statement

The inks capture the essence of flowers and fruits so nicely!  I love to let the flow of the inks create a soft and delicate look to the leaves and petals. Last year I discovered the black, glossy paper which requires you to apply white inks before adding color, the results are the flowers have an eerie and "other worldly" look.
