Color, form, and wildlife are the ultimate raisons d'être.

In psychotherapy, I teach my patients that in moments of intense distress, sometimes taking a hot shower or looking at a beloved old photograph is all it takes to reorient to what is important to them. I am now following my own advice, and allowing my love for color, form and wildlife to follow its own course onto paper as a way of expressing and celebrating life. Instead of seeing aesthetic enjoyment as being just "nice" moments in life, I see them as the ultimate raison d'être.

My favorite medium for expression is currently watercolor. I used to be intimidated by its fickleness and unpredictability, but now I see that along with those things comes freedom. Using water, I am also able to draw upon Chinese brush painting techniques. This is the ancient artistic style I grew up with, and its ability to capture a moment with such minimalism inspires me still. In keeping with its tradition, I sign my paintings with a seal bearing my Chinese name.

To learn more about my personal background, please see my profile. I look forward to hearing your feedback and encouragement, and I thank you sincerely for visiting my studio.
