About

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."

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.
