In 2017 I discovered and developed a new ink technique using chemically reactant inks.
I found I could "build" landscapes in a puddle on a piece of paper. 

The chemical inks that are built into mountains, valleys, oceans, and rivers, dissolve,
leaving only a shell of the painting that once was.
In order to pause time, I use my photography experience of 10+ years, 
to capture the moment as it truly was,
and create these prints that can become a part of your home.

Each print is a moment in time; a reminder of the incredible beauty every little moment can be. 
It's worth keeping your eyes open, it's worth pursuing. 
It's worth cherishing, framing, and hanging on a wall.
Because this breath-taking, fragile, temporary life? 

It's all of ours, it's ours to share.



2017

stats + gallery

 

 

In 2017 this method was utilized to create aerial-inspired abstracts,
as well as detailed and accurate topography maps of regions, states, and planetary bodies. 

 
  • Over 10 commissioned works were completed for clients throughout the US, as well as Italy and Australia.
  • Through the funding of two Kickstarter campaigns (Ink the States and Ink the Earth) over 81 paintings were completed, shipping an estimated 2,000 prints to over 25 countries world-wide.
  • In addition to these categories, I painted nearly 15 abstracts and agates throughout the year.
  • Two of these abstracts won 1st place in both art shows for which they were submitted.
 

In order to streamline studio processes, and keep this website fresh,
the 100+ ink paintings from 2017 are now only available in my print shop through Etsy:
