Chinese Brush Painting has been my love for over 30 years, and in that tradition I paint from memory and imagination, drawing from my deep love for the mountains and trees of my home. To make my art I blend the more traditional Chinese brush painting & materials of watercolor and black ink with hand made paper, bark or linen to create my own blend of art where East meets West.
When I was 40+ years old I saw Madeline Fu teaching a Chinese Brush painting class in the back of Fu's studio. I was immediately captivated and never had either introduction nor interest in art prior to that chance encounter! I then returned to begin lessons with Madeline the next week and continued every week for 25 years. Chinese Brush has been a major part of my life ever since!
