"Gentle Soul" Chinese japanese ink brush pen painting by 


I dedicate this painting to all the little ladybugs living in my garden. Thank you for giving me joy…

“Gentle Soul” is an original ink brush pen painting. Including the border, it measures 8-1/2″ × 11″ and is on heavy stock, white textured paper.

A little ladybug, with a gentle soul, rests peacefully amongst the bamboo…

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

This ‘one stroke style’ painting is from my ‘Beauty of Bamboo’ series. The bamboo is a magnificent gift from nature.

Bend with the wind,
grow with ease,
reach for the heavens,
embrace the sun.

I try to set my scanner to be as close as possible to the original color of the art piece. There is a slight color variation between the digital and the scanned original art.

I assume reproduction rights to all of my original art. Nothing may be used in any way, shape or form on merchandise or promotional items of any kind.

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. Since they are growing up, I have more time to myself which I enjoy channeling into my drawing and painting.

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.
