In the words of the artist, "A fascination with nature and trees has pervaded most of my 30-year career in art. I attended ceramics courses at college; later studied Chinese brush painting, from which I learned the subtleties of brushwork and the Chinese philosophy that influences my work. I am now expanding on this nature theme with bird and wave motifs. I have chosen the heron for its elegant look and serene personality.
The “wave” pieces are inspired by the Japanese master of woodcut prints, Hokusai, especially his Mt. Fuji wave print. The waves show not only the power of nature but also its graceful beauty."
