I feel a kinship with the painters, poets and calligraphers of Asia’s rich cultural past. My paintings are an expression of my feelings, my experience, my chi/energy, and some magic. Using the sumi brush, rice paper, ink and watercolors I can express my spirit. With these tools I try to capture “The Breath of Life.”
I studied at an art academy in Hangzhou, China in 1987, and with Horse Master Lok Tok for 17 years. In 2009, I co-led a group of artists through China. I have won international and national awards on Calligraphy & Horses; I teach privately and at Art Centers.
