I am a painter and Sumi-e teacher.

 

The minimalist free style of my paintings has its roots in the Asian Brush Technique of Sumi-e and its philosophy. After having studied Calligraphy and Asian Painting from Asian and Western teachers, I have deliberately moved from traditional  subjects. I now paint only what I know intimately and from my heart.

 

 

I presently live in Roberts Creek  on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia (Canada), surrounded by cedar trees. There, I practice and teach the art of Sumi-e .

I hope that my paintings will touch you and bring some of the joy and calmness I felt when I painted them.

My paintings are exposed at The Landing Gallery in Gibsons.
