The process

 


       For thousands of years, our ancestors had simply used pure pigments, like clays, minerals and other organic elements to express themselves. Living in connection and with love for the Earth. In my creative process, I am inspired by these ancient techniques and methods.

Mother Nature     

Listening to her whispers

Observing her divine patterns

Appreciating the magic in all beings

It’s so magical to know, that these iron oxides from the Earth, have thousands of years and allow us to create

 

Since early 2017, I began to prepare the inks by hand with colors collected in different places of the world, from natural and sustainable sources. My intention is to share the beauty of Nature and to be more in alignment with her. Each pigment we found on Land is unique, radiant and a living element. It is a gift from our Creator.
