I am always interested in new products, less toxic methods and supplies, and ease of use. The Akua inks attracted me for all those reasons. The longer I use them, the more I like them.
I am an experienced instructor who is never tired of introducing adults to creative practice. It is very satisfying to show them ways to make exciting new work almost as soon as they begin. The Akua inks allow for spontaneity and concentration on process rather than on technical constraints.
