Welcome to my web site.  I hope you will enjoy learning about Chinese Brush Painting in the Artist’s Statement and Four Gentlemen sections.  Please be sure to check the Exhibits and Awards” section for up coming exhibits, and view the gallery.

Art is a vehicle for me to communicate with nature.  As an artist, I like to reveal nature’s vitality in my paintings through personal observations and experience.










‘The Hsieh I (Depicting Idea in Chinese) painting style is one of the most dynamic forms of art.  Spontaneity, freedom, and honesty are the most important principles.  The painting is done without a sketch and the brush movement is completed in a simple, powerful and speedy way.  The artist is allowed no time to think, no chance to pretend, no room to hide, and no way to correct.  The painting becomes a direct extension of the artist’s mentality; it reveals the personality and experience of the artist in the most earnest way.
