Latest work: "Inked, Painted, and Torn"

Vintage papers, hand-painted papers, ripped and torn, combine to create this piece.

I don't know where all these Japanese-inspired images are coming from.

I did live in Japan for a year (part of it in a Japanese house on a hill in Kamakura), but I was thirteen and clueless. (Not that I am clued-in now, I hasten to add.)

But there's just something about old papers, ink, rips and tears, simplicity of design that draws me in.

Sayonara for now . . .
