Made from Foliage
Variety of handmade and bought inks and acrylics, mixed media
I spent much of the summer 2022 collecting fresh branches of a variety of species from around my neighborhood in Dallas, Texas. I then soaked those branches in different mixtures of ink and watercolor, and developed the iterations of the drawings below on large pieces of paper. Some of the inks I used were developed from boiling collected flowers into handmade inks. The inks are then applied via the foliage with lots of movement as I dance around the edges of the paper.
