Welcome to my web site! I am an emerging artist from California with a strong Asian spirit. I have been painting all my life, and now here is a way that I can share my creations with everyone via the web. On this web site you can explore my works of art and make purchases, and in Salon La Touche share in the conversation about the world of art. You will also find listings of current art events and workshops that I participate in.
Please join me in discovering the mysteries of traditional Chinese and Japanese Brush Painting and then watch as I dance with the brush to create contemporary Zen paintings. I also work in watercolors and pen & ink, and with ceramics, particularly fine porcelain. I make art to express my appreciation for the endless wonders in nature. My stories are told visually, are made by my hands, and come from my heart.
Art doesn’t make the world go round, it just makes the journey more beautiful.TM
