|After retiring from many years of teaching Fine Arts in
secondary schools, I was delighted to discover the refreshing
world of Chinese Brush Painting. It was inspiring to learn the
traditional techniques and philosophies of the ancient art.
Chinese Brush Painting presents variety in all aspects of
painting, and I love the direct quality of the brushwork.
The use of unique papers and the intricacies of mounting the
finished paintings add challenges, which always provide
interest and a feeling of accomplishment when completed
|I am fortunate to have studied with Nenagh Molson and John Nip, who are inspiring teachers, and I continue to count upon their
kindness and interest in my work.
I belong to the "Studio for Harmonious Endeavours" and show with that group every December at Goward House. The painters at the
Monterey Recreation Centre share their enthusiasm for the medium at our meetings. As a member of the Oak Bay Community Artists
Society I show at the Bowker Creek Brush-Up every August.
