Landscapes of the Mind

Inspired by over fifteen hundred years of traditional and contemporary Chinese landscape paintings, I feel the passion to bring the spirit of beautiful classic Chinese landscape painting to twenty-first century, in a style no one had ever done before. Each of my paintings originates in a process of “controlled coincidence” whereby a first level of ink and form is applied to the surface by ancient Chinese techniques. Like most ancient Chinese masters my art emphasize calm, poetic, philosophical, solitary, pride and intellectually stimulating.
