Zen by the Brush - enlightening and spirited art

I developed my zen style of brush painting during my zen monastic life in New York State and in Japan. I love the paintings of Paul Reps, Sengai, Hakkuin. I have illustrated two books: a James Beard nominated vegetarian cookbook "A Taste of Heaven and Earth"( Harper Collins) and "Zen by the Brush" (Stewart, Tabori and Chang). My work is in public and private collections.

I started painting Chinese Zodiac new years cards to give to my friends about 12 years ago. In Japan, it is a tradition to send new years greetings on January 1. And thought to share "hey maybe others would perhaps like to do the same."

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I love custom orders and have happy collectors! There's no better way to express yourself than with your own ideas and designs and i am happy to collaborate. So contact me! Original art has the unique energy of the artist and is well worth the investment in enjoyment. Paintings and cards can be personalized and I am quick and will give you options.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Art and cards are in cello envelopes and gift wrapped in colorful tissue paper - ready to gift - to someone special or yourself!

Wholesale availability

Lets discuss wholesale! Contact me for quantities and costs.

Care instructions

4 x 9 inch paintings fit well in a standard frame 8.5 x 11 with matting
6 x 9 inch paintings fit well in 10 x 13 frame with matting
12 x 12 inch paintings fit in a "album" cover frame perfectly.
In case my wild brushstrokes come close to the edge of the paper, you could "float" art with the matting opening larger than the artwork.
Traditional scroll mounting is also available, contact me for details.

International orders will take an estimated 7-14 days, but may take up to several weeks due to customs processing and you will be responsible for VAT customs fees/taxes.
