love about Asian Brush Painting is the simple elegance of the natural subjects,
plus the real and apparent spontaneity of the the process. Less is more. A few
strokes can capture the beauty of a blossom or the fragility of a falling leaf. There is a meditation quality to the process.
I create each image at one sitting, with no preliminary drawing. The idea is to
capture the natural essence of the image rather than a detailed botanical copy.
These works combine elements of water color paintings and calligraphic line
drawings, and, yet, have their own unique look and style. As an art historian,
I love preserving and reinterpreting classic techniques for modern-day viewers.
