Meditation - Zen Bamboo brush painting by 

“Meditation” is an original painting. I used a royal blue ink brush pen. For the paper, I painted on a page taken from a very old japanese/american dictionary. Page #413.

The word ‘meditation’ is on this page.

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.

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.
