The Ink Series is an direct outgrowth of the Infinity Series, and began around 2010. The mental drive was to seek out the purity of the line thorugh a medium that could not be remanipulated. I was given a piece of mylar to play with and applied some Sumi ink to the surface - immediately responding to the translucency of the surface working with the sublime character of the ink, created a kind of ethereal quality. This led to layering pieces together to create a multi-demensional experience. Further explorations included embedding mixed media to create the Opal Series and works on paper with mixed media.
