As for so many people around the world, my home and the immediate surroundings became the center of my life in 2020. When faced with no where to go but where I was, I found that it was full to the brim with possibilities. I fell in love with all that was on offer especially the colors and textures of the treasures in the natural world. Since then I have learned how to make ink from the plants, trees and flowers that grow in the area and it has become a new way of expressing myself. I am bewitched... finding a way to meld together the countless things I love about life and then placing them in one tiny bottle at a time. My show (pictured above) in August of 2020 resembled an alchemist’s cabinet. “Natural ink is a condensed landscape in a little bottle”, Jason Logan.
