Urban Light Studios presents:
“Zen & the Silent Voices of Critters & Trees”
Come and see some of my paintings and drawings of critters and bonsai trees!
My outlook on life and influences on my art come from travels and experiences. We all draw on what we know, or believe we know. I believe my travels and experiences, which include various places in the US, Europe, Western Africa, Asia, have shaped who I am. I did my undergraduate work in Montana with exchanges and overseas studies in France and Africa. I attended graduate school at the University of Hawaii, and then moved to Japan in 1990 where I have spent ten years full time, and many more traveling back and forth. I now reside in Seattle.
I started college as a Fine Arts major, although I eventually finished with degrees in both linguistics and political science. Art has always been a part of my life.
In 2007 I started a fine art reproduction and giclée printing business called Bellevue Fine Art Reproduction in Seattle (Bellevue). My day job is now reproducing artwork for other artists and fine art photographers, which is not only an interesting job, but has an enormous impact on my own work, serving as a daily inspiration.
