In 2015, I introduced alcohol ink paint medium over my encaustic painting, using it as a gesso as sorts, which I had done for the previous ten years. The transition to paint solely with alcohol ink began January 2016 for a solo show in that year. The fluidity of all my works is ever present, no matter what medium I employ. Alcohol inks give me the intense color and movement in different ways from my encaustic painting, breathing new . My encaustic has been painted on custom cradled wood boards, but I have found I like a minimal approach for my alcohol ink, which I paint on aluminum panels.
