Photography and Alcohol Ink commissions

Do you have a special image that you would love to become the background of a unique alcohol ink and global water piece of art? The end result of this type of commission is simply stunning. Send in an image or portrait along with a vial of water from your special place and your photograph becomes the canvas of an amazing work of art. The alcohol ink and water create stunning effects and colors that overlap and cover the photograph allowing for just enough to come through creating a very personal piece. It can be an image of your wedding party, your fav selfie, a random picture that you find amazing and it will be used as the canvas for your special commission.

Give the Ocean as a gift they will always remember.

Where have you been? Where do you want to go?

I create custom artworks for people all over the world with water they have sent to me from a place that is meaningful to them. This is how I give people the opportunity to "own the ocean" and take home a beautiful and uniquely personal artwork made with water from their very special place.  The stories that people share with me are so special and the art becomes an intimate part of them because they are physically contributing to their artwork by collecting and sending that water. People have a very strong connection to water and to travel.  My desire is to create truly deep and transformative experiences through my artwork. I feel a very personal connection with those who participate with me in this creative process. It is very meaningful.

Collecting Water OBX

This was taken Summer of ‘18 in Surf City, NC. A group of tourists from Spain had asked if I could do a commission with the local ocean water. Since we were all there I decided we should all paddle out to a calm distance and collect the water together for their special piece. When people collect and send me water for their commissions, they become an active part of their art and that is so special to me.
