Since the beginning of 2019, I have been gathering a variety of natural materials for use in making different kinds of drawing inks. These experiments are ongoing, and the results are often integrated into my work.

Many of the successful experiments may be found at my downtown studio at Art Connections, in the Arts District in Winston-Salem.
