In this free workshop, you will learn how to work with the medium of Ink. Ink is a truly diverse medium. It seems so simple - just black. Yet it can be anything from a stark, black, hard line, to a soft, grey wash. Ashley believes that a successful ink painting is found in the balance between white space, blackness and texture, and between relinquishing control and practiced technique. Come explore ink's boundless possibilities along with her!
Ashley Opperman is the lead designer at Metropol Industries and an artist in Victoria, BC. Currently she is interested in incorporating evidence of the artist's hand within her digital designs. And in her art practice, she is working towards allowing honesty and personal experience lead her. Though, bold contrasts, organic textures and expressive brush strokes have become ongoing themes and motifs throughout her work.
