Artist's Statement:

In my own case, even before my graduate work in ethnomusicology and art history, I began the study of calligraphy and ink-painting in 1969 in New York City with Wang Chi-yuan and Ishikawa Kako, subsequently studying in Japan and Taiwan with Mitani Chizan and Chiang Shao-shen.

Another combination of arts that I find fascinating is haiga, where a haiku and a visual image can combine to reach a deeper expression than either one might alone. I have studied traditional haiga (and written an exhibition catalogue by that name) as well as creating my own works in this field.
