STATEMENT & CV
So, who am I? I am artistically known by my nickname, Pinkie Ing. Ing is the real family name, but somewhere in the Hawaiian part of our history, it got a little convoluted. I grew up in Central New York and moved away when I was young. I lived in Los Angeles for 45 years and came to Upstate New York in 2014. I'm a die-hard soul from the West.
I am a visual artist who photographs in black and white and I love telling stories.
I currently print my own work on fine art papers with archival inks. I choose to make smaller prints (8x10). I take care with the papers and processes that I use.
I was educated in fine art (painting, drawing, etc) and went to school for photography in Santa Monica. Later, I spent years with a photography mentor who encouraged me to buy more equipment than I would ever need, but the value in that mentorship helped me cross over from being a snap shooter.
My first camera was a Pentax K1000 Asahi. My first digital camera was operated with a floppy disc. I sold my first painting when I was 15 years old. I used to write poetry, mainly to make fun of my mother in lyric and then she caught me doing it.
Print Sales and Licensing:
Prints are available for sale at Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute's museum store in Utica, NY, through Saatchiart.com, or contact me directly through the contact page for sales and licensing.
Prints that I ship are shipped flat, unmounted and unframed. In most instances, the paper I use is heavier weight and will not be rolled into tubes for mailing.
