Ink on paper is a process I feel very connected and which is in line with my values. My desire to be an organic artist inspires me to create my own home made inks from berries that grow in my back yard, such as cherries, saskatoon, blueberries, and raspberries. I want to reflect my personal life’s mission in my art, and therefor i use the berries i picked in my back yard to create colourful organic pigments. I use a calligraphy pen for the dark out lines and natural sea sponges to shade in the silhouettes. The process is unpredictable, as the finished product isn’t revealed until the ink has completely dried.
