Artist and Instructor
I am a contemporary Sumi-e artist reaching beyond the limits of traditional ink painting and creating the ‘sound of one hand’. My paintings one would not generally call traditional sumi-e. However, I adhere to the traditional sumi-e principles and philosophies, as well as, the traditional mind and spirit preparation the artist performs before beginning a sumi-e painting. Sumi-e expresses the character and absolute soul of the artist. It is a meditative process and spiritually personal for me. Understanding this idea of spirit has been at the core of my art work. I have studied and been a student of Western painting and of Eastern ink painting. Ink painting called Sumi-e in Japan has captivated my spirit and soul completely. I am continually trying to increase my understanding of the glorious secret of it's beauty and grace and elegance. My intention is to merge East and West in my contemporary sumi-e style. My medium is sumi (ink) and Japanese watercolor.
