"Works on Paper" is a collection of artwork inspired by a beautiful essay titled, “Between Solitude and Loneliness.” Balink derived these pieces from that essay, along with rivers, trees and open spaces, noting they were a bit haunting. These experiences left a permanent, lingering impression along with thoughts about solitude and how it can often be a comfortable feeling that is all portrayed in her artwork.
