“The vivid, colorful and bright hues of my medium inspire me and others to appreciate the value of the natural spectrum of color and how it can affect one’s mood and outlook. It has become a whole and creative healing process for me.”
Alene Sirott-Cope has been dealing with Type 1 Diabetes since college and is now dealing with the consequences, including all of the health situations that have occurred as a result, such as limited walking capabilities and open-heart surgery. “YouTube was a huge help with my learning process, as I could not attend workshops or classes on the subject of alcohol inks!”
Alene’s style combines her graphic design experience with technology and a dash of mixed media thrown in. She is an experimenter who likes to find new techniques that inspire her. Her most recent work has developed into a predominantly pet related venture where she uses photography to create very colorful pet portraits. The alcohol ink technique she encompasses is very relaxing and Zen like and produces beautiful results in a short time.
She has been a professional graphic designer, potter, art director, art educator and fine artist Her work is seen in The Crafts Report, Art Calendar, Boston Globe, The Nashua Telegraph, The Lowell Sun, Funeria Art, Polymer Cafe Magazine, UNH 2015 Calendar, 1000 Dog Portraits, NH Chronicle, “Pigments of Your Imagination” book and HGTV’s “That’s Clever”.
