'after the rain' - original ink and wash painting by 

after the rain, all life awakens…

I dedicate this painting to rain.

Original ink and wash painting on heavy weight, textured, white paper – 8-1/2″ × 11″. From my ‘Beauty of Bamboo’ series.

“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”
- Bruce Lee -

I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ paintings.

Featured in “Americas ~ rural, urban, wild, free”.

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.
