I met Brooke through Asian brush painting class I am teaching at Articulture. She studied sculpture in graduate school and in the past three years she has been working on figure drawings. Two years ago she joined my class to work on hand-eye coordination. She brings such a passion for art and learning into class. Now she is an amazing Sumi-e artist. Here is her orchid painting she did in class.
She also is an amazing writer. Here is what she wrote after seeing my work, Blessings:
When we look at these prints, we seem to enter a subterranean environment inhabited by a lighthearted yet clearly intentional force traversing within heavier and easier waters — the goal or destination not yet revealed.
