When I was very young, I would trace printed images, becoming familiar with graceful lines, form and space. Mainly through self-taught studies, art became my lifetime focus, my profession, my expression and my joy.
My current works have taken on the intense colors and vibrancy of the Yunnan school of painting. Delicate rice paper, painted on both sides in “heavy color” gouache, brings brilliancy, visual depth and dimension to the images. Edges are left untrimmed and the paper floated, adding to the unique treatment and style.
My paintings depict various images, but always with the imagery of the Sun and Moon that watch over our world. My brushwork moves the viewer’s eyes and mind between the spatial relationships, while bold color and visual image attracts and holds the imagination. Subtle shadings, fine line work, and unique subjects make these works my finest achievements.
My hope is that my collectors are captured each day by the glow and mystery of my paintings.
