"I moved to FL to be near the ocean and my family. I’ve always loved the waves and mesmerizing continuous calming motion. I forget all of my problems and zen out on the movement of the water. The foam is proof of that movement as well as a design element. The sea turbulence combined with organic elements create the beautiful bubble-like foamy decor of my painting.
The ocean promotes serenity. I do not use paintbrushes in any of my alcohol ink work. All of my tools are typical household items such as cotton balls, q-tips, felt, gauze, and coffee stirrers. I choose alcohol ink due to its highly concentrated color and brightness."

ALCOHOL INK ON WHITEBOARD
31" x 24"
Hobe Sound, Florida
“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 had Type 1 Diabetes since college and has dealt with significant health implications, including open-heart surgery and limited walking capabilities.
Alene’s creative style combines her graphic design experience with technology and a dash of mixed media. She is an experimenter who seeks new techniques, always willing to venture into the unknown. The alcohol ink technique she employs allows her to relax while producing immense beauty in a short amount of time.
