ink, paper, water, rocks, sunshine, joy 

  My drawings capture the immediacy and unique energy that comes from working outside in that place, on that day, in that moment.  The tools are sumi ink and Japanese paper and brushes; traditional Asian materials used in a non-traditional way.  The landscape is a place from my childhood which conjures thoughts of family, picnics, and penny candy.  The challenge is working en plein air in New England creating large scale drawings through wind, heat, and humidity.  It’s such fun!
