Art has always been at the center of my life. When I was very young, I would trace images, becoming familiar with the graceful lines, form and space. Mainly through self-taught studies, art became my profession, my expression and my joy.
Now, for over a decade, my works have taken on the intense color and vibrancy of the Yunnan school of painting. Delicate rice paper painted on both sides in “heavy color” gouache brings brilliancy, with a visual depth and movement to the works. Brushwork moves your eyes and mind between the spatial relationships, while bold color and visual images attract and hold your imagination. Raw edges of the paper are exposed, adding to the unique treatment and style.
Art is my total immersion. But my enjoyment and fulfillment in creating each piece is only part of my purpose. The final step in my art is you. I am honored to share each piece with you in the hope that they bring to you the peace and emotion that creating them brings me.
