Medium: Alcohol Ink & Acrylic Gouache

Art Walk station #5: Ink Exploration

Kelly Devenish is an artist based out of Burlington, Ontario whose primary mediums are acrylic gouache and alcohol ink. Having studied and performed for many years on the trumpet, Kelly was drawn to art as an additional creative outlet. Kelly began with pen and ink drawings and with the support of family, was introduced to alcohol ink and acrylic gouche. These seemingly opposite mediums provide the ideal contrast between a free-flowing creative process and one that is more deliberate and planned. The fact that natural elements such as botanical plants and flowers can yield such vivid shades and colours provides infinite hope and inspiration along Kelly’s artistic journey.
