"Take A Chance" Sumi-e Ink Brush Pen Ladybug Painting by 

Sometimes we all need to go out on a limb and take a chance….even the little ladybug. An adventure awaits.

I dedicate this painting to those that take the leap of faith.

Sumi-e attempts to capture the Chi or “life spirit” of the subject with just a few strokes of the brush.

Medium: asian ink brush pens on heavy weight desert sand colored paper.

Thank you

I studied illustration and design at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. I am married and the mother of two wonderful boys; one is a college graduate and the other is currently attending college.

I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and Chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ painting. I love the grace and beauty of bamboo.
