"Iris" Prints


I prefer to sell my work to collectors in the form of fine art "Iris" prints on artists Arches cotton paper. These prints are color matched professionally to the original painting and are printed on the highest quality artists paper. They are museum archival quality, reproduced under the strictest supervision of the artist using inks and papers which have the longest life available with current printing technology. An "Iris" print is a museum quality Fine Art Digital Print.

Media and Technique


I am primarily a visual artist, a painter, who creates mostly in waterbased media on paper. I also do a great deal of drawing, using charcoal, graphite,and conte crayon . My work is usually characterized as mixed media. The paints I use are highest grade watercolor and gouache from the worlds finest manufacturers of artists materials. Generally speaking,the original paintings and drawings are not for sale.

Personal Philosophy








For the most part, it is difficult for an artist to speak about his or her work. The work must speak for itself aesthetically in the final analysis. There are many influences to my work as an artist that have helped shape my viewpoint. I have interests in history that relate to the source of ideas in various world cultures. I also have interests in world religions and the study of philosophy. I believe these ideas ultimately link us all globally in our post-industrial information age to much earlier places in world civilization.


I have always held an intense interest in the observation of the natural world. Early on in my college years I discovered a book which was to profoundly shape my life interests, that book was, Principles of Chinese Painting, by George Rowley,l974, Princeton University Press. ISBN: 0-69l-03834-l


Traditional Chinese painting from the Middle Ages (A.D. 400-l400) combined both Taoist and Buddhist ideals. These philosophical and religious ideals tend to center my work in the immediacy of the moment and bring clarity to the events of life.


The study of Taichi Chuan has developed into a passion that aids my creation of visual art.I practice the Yang Long Form, as taught by Master Shiu-pak Lee (l9l0-l982).


TaiChi is an "Internal Martial Art". It is Shaolin, developed by Chang San-feng,(l279-l368)who was a Taoist priest.


The following chart provides a record of Chinese TaiChiChuan Masters who conveyed its study during the early l600s from China into the USA , in the latter part of the 20th century.
