We are made of Glass
Ink and tea on paper with gold and embroidered details.

We are transparent
We are fragile
We break under pressure
We are glass

We see clearly
We control our vision
we can alter reality
We are glass
Large scale work on paper ink and tea with acrylic and soluble graphite
Would love some feedback on this piece, experimenting with new inks... is it too busy though ???
Inky libes
A little snap of work on the go ...

Hey there, i'm a student who would like to use some of your artwork in my sketchbook for references and examples. Would this be ok with you? If so, are there any rules you have about using your artwork in this way?
