From 2005 through 2015, I studied Asian art with wonderful and patient tutors while running a business in southern China. One of my goals now is to apply the Chinese painting skills learned in Asia to a wider variety of subject matter, especially the landscapes, animals, and plants along the eastern coast of the United States. I find transitional spaces like marshes intriguing, and the connections between art and spirituality also motivate me --for example, the concept of imago dei, the belief that art and creativity matter because of the imprint of the creator God on humankind. Currently, I am preparing to do more shows in the coming year, as well as teaching classes in Asian ink and watercolor painting at the Visual Arts Center in Titustown, Norfolk.
