studio activities:

 

My studio is a place of refuge and quiet.  No clocks or telephones to distract me.  It is where I practice calligraphy and paint. My  practice of Japanese calligraphy is the discipline that holds everything together. It evolved from a practice of Kendo and Iiado(sword fighting and form), and  helps me transition from 'life' to painting and back again.

I have a few Kenji (words) and phrases that I practice  repetitively.  I don't need many, and to the left is my favourite.

 

 

The studio is where I receive selected and serious adult students, collectors and art lovers. Painting nourishes all the activities listed below.
