"Motu" - acrylic and ink wash painting of bamboo. by 

“Motu” is an original acrylic and ink brush pen wash painting. It is painted on an 8-1/2″ × 11″ heavy stock, textured egg shell colored paper.

In the language of beautiful Tahiti, the word “motu” means small island, or islet. It is one of the many homes of the graceful bamboo.

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

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.
