Hello! I have been an artist since I was a kid, and then became a Zen Buddhist monk in 1990. I studied Zen in New York and in Japan. My painting comes from looking closely at nature and meditation. I have illustrated two books: Zen by the Brush and A Taste of Heaven and Earth, a cookbook. I really admire the work of Sengai, Paul Reps, and Hakuin, among many, many others.
