About The Artist


I create meditative watercolor paintings based on the philosophy and poetry of Taoism.  Each painting embraces the belief in balancing forces: abstract yet familiar, austere yet intimately inviting, bold yet politely reserved and controlled yet fluid.  I start by making small 6″x6″ paintings and with each larger iteration pair back until it’s reduced to its essential most minimal form.  The repetitive practice of rebuilding the same painting is as important as the final piece though nobody sees them.  This practice builds perseverance and a meditative focus.  Made with watercolor for its delicate transparency, unpredictable nature and respect for the environment.
