About the Artist:  Local Ohio artist Sheila Wy is best known for her work with alcohol ink and creative cardmaking. Much of her Alcohol Ink paintings were created by “straw blowing” ink, while at other times they are actually created by lighting the inks on fire! She says that working with Alcohol Inks in this manner is like the box of chocolate saying in the movie Forest Gump: “you never know what you’re going to get.” She states that “Sometimes the most beautiful things appear from nothing at all!”
