Norene S. Spencer

 I gravitated to the simplicity of East Asian Brush Painting long before I took up a brush. The elegance, freedom and energy, chi, for brush work continues to fascinate me.

My main goal of teaching Sumi-e is to spread the enjoyment of this ancient art form. It always amazes people that they too can paint.

My work can be viewed at Portsmouth Arts and Cultural Center, Portsmouth, VA.
