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.
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.
