Alcohol Ink on Tile
Perhaps the most versatile, and easiest for beginners to get a good result.
Alcohol Ink on double-pane anti-reflective glass
Maximum translucence and great layering possibilities. 1% reflection glass makes a 100% difference!
Alcohol Ink on Yupo paper
Less fluidity than tile or glass, but more control. Great for more representational styles.
Put your artwork to decorative and practical use!

About Your Host:
Lisa Martin Smallwood
Known as “Liasi”, Lisa is a native from Philadelphia Pennslyvania ; ” The City of Brotherly Love”
I was raised with the strong influence of Jazz, the Blues and singing. My father Dowell Smallwood was one of the badest drummer in Philadelphia, and my mother was a classy songstress who loved Opera.
At an early age, I could be found bobbing my head, and snapping my fingers as I watched my fathers weekend jam sessions. During these moments, I began developing my own self expression and compassion for Art.
During my educational years I attended the Philadelphia for Creative Arts High School, majoring in the Visual Arts Program. I furthered my education at the Philadelphia Community College Art Program.
Years later I attended The Progression School Of Fine art, in Delaware Co. in Pa. This school had a strong influence on me by combining music and art together. The collaboration of the two inspired me to continue my passion. ” I found my niche “, listening to BB King or Miles Davis as my paint brush dazzled my palate creating a work of art, ” My self Expression.”
