Huntington Gardens Plein Air Bamboo Drawing #1 by 

Original bamboo drawing on 5″ × 7″ heavy card stock. This is from my new, “mini card size drawing” series on RedBubble. It is drawn with ink brush pens.

Drawn at The Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino, California – June 24, 2011. I sat under the trees near the Bonsai garden.

The path of Zen leads to peace…

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.

My paintings are created to relax the inner soul, bring peace and tranquility to the spiritual side of your nature.

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

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.
