“I started this work two years ago when I first moved to Portland. For the first year I mostly painted patterns and mandalas with india ink. I started using a compass to make my circles more balanced and would often grid my compositions with a ruler. Last summer I started trying to incorporate gauche and watercolor. I have been using lacquer-based inks for my outline and detail areas. Lately with the newest stuff I have been combining the patterns with figures. I like the effect and am really enjoying the process. I hope you enjoy it too.” – Zachary Marvick
