I am a contemporary Canadian artist. I have a degree in Fine arts (BFA) as well as Bachelor of Science (BSc) from Concordia University, Montreal. My life is inspired by oriental philosophies such as Taoism and Zen Buddhism, and my art is influenced by their teachings.

My paintings are in Sumi-e style, based on calligraphic strokes, where the emphasis is on capturing the mood, energy or spirit, rather than giving detailed description.

I have been teaching Sumi-e since 2007. I use a unique approach to facilitate people with Western or Eastern with modern background for easier learning of this profound form of creating.

I guide my students to truly see the subject matter as if seen for first time and convey that in their artwork. In my classes I help the students to connect to their body and with mindful presence, breath and Oriental brush to create dynamic and poetic image.
