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.
'No matter what the endeavour,
there is no permanence".
