The 'INKspirations'

2016  -  2017

In 2016 I became intrigued with Klecksography, the 19th century art of making images from inkblots. I experimented with the technique by dropping acrylic ink onto watercolour art-board. Although my inkblots were not mirror-images like the original Klecksographs, I watched with delight as faces and figures began to appear as the ink dried. Using pen and ink, I developed the images that emerged and eventually dubbed these whimsical creations, the 'INKspirations'

No Wooden Eyes To See

No wooden eyes to see No wooden hearts for me The one who wins the gold Will hold a vision bright and bold But the gold of which I speak Is not the dollar strong or weak It's the riches banked within That will be the prize we win
