“At first glance of the vibrant colors in alcohol ink, I was compelled beyond words to start painting myself… and I did!  The inks ‘excited’ something within me at time when I needed an outlet. I believe that most of us have an artist within us waiting to escape.  My vision is for AIAC to provide that inspiration and outlet to others, as well as raise awareness of alcohol ink as a fine art medium!”  said Laurie “Trumpet” Williams, founder of the Alcohol Ink Art Community.  – Laurie Wiliams, Founder

“I love pure bright color! I do many art forms but lately the one that call to me in which I can express my love of color is alcohol ink. I am enchanted with the way the inks flow as if they have their own agenda. It is like having a secret painting partner. Alcohol inks can be like meditation or therapy, it can be loose and wild or smooth and controlled (somewhat). I thoroughly enjoy the diversity this medium can offer. I also love seeing how it touches everyone’s art spirit at whatever skill level they may be at. Everyone can play!”   — Francine Dufour Jones, Founding Contributor

“I have been a captive of alcohol inks for a number of years now.  It is a medium like no other.  It takes a minute to learn but a lifetime to master… if it can be mastered at all.  It is full of happy accidents and “Holy Cow, Oh Wow!” moments.” Denise Johnson, Founding Contributor

“I love the flow of the inks, how the act on different substrates, and how they interact with each other. Working with alcohol inks are very intuitive. I never know where the inks will take me or what they will do. It’s always a surprise! And I like that!”  – Denise Balcanoff, Founding Contributor
