Jordan Sallis is a Pagan artist and curator.

Working with materials that the natural world provides in forms of paintings, illustrations, mixed media and installation, her work aims to strengthen the connection we all have to the natural world through her creative practice.

 

She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including group exhibitions at South Wales Artists’ Gallery, South Wales (2021) and Plastic Arts Group Online, Turkey (2020).
 

Through commissions Jordan has completed various projects relating to artistic outcomes, ranging from custom cartography maps, portraits, illustrations, logo designs and website design.

In 2012, Jordan created her own Online Art company: MsBlackInk, which has strengthened skills through creating an authentic brand, website, original artworks, prints and services.

"My art practice focuses on using organic materials as the subject and the medium. Paganism has been a prime influence with the belief of showing a veneration for nature throughout my artistic process, leading me to combine the two by crafting my own tools, inks and papers out of natural resources."
