Living in the lush beauty of the Pacific Northwest lends to the philosophy based on the nature of the ancient Asian Sumi-e style of painting. To capture a subject on handmade paper or silk in a few elegant strokes of ink is ideal. The spontaneous line plays a prominent role in the composition of Sumi.
The Spiritual dimension becomes an all-healing meditative experience. Working with the traditional, teaching of this ancient art, I've blended my own style depicting subjects that may be insignificant or multifaceted. For me, Sumi has captured my heart and soul.
