Message from Anne:
I am Anne Roos Smink, an alcohol ink artist based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. I create abstract (floral-themed) artworks and more functional art (e.g., coasters). My alcohol ink journey began in 2018 when I discovered the magic of alcohol inks. Alcohol ink art started as a stress releaser besides my work in academia, and it soon turned into a creative journey that is all about following my true passion. In 2022 I decided to take the leap, and I am now fulfilling my dream of becoming a full-time artist.
My work is inspired by nature, flowers, the ocean, landscapes, and anything I see around me when going outside. But even more, the process itself is very inspiring and intuitive. Often, I start by moving some ink around my surface, and by going with the flow of the inks, my ideas emerge, and the artwork begins to take shape. This process is mesmerizing and is what I love doing most. I get so much positive energy from making the inks flow around my paper, and I hope I can bring some of that positive energy to you.
