Exhibit : Confluence
Reception: March 19, Meet the artist April 8th, Luncheon talk April 13, 2017
Confluence, like the meeting of rivers, expresses the coming together of my passion for both printmaking and painting. The flow of paint and ink are brought together using both Japanese and western materials and techniques. The light and inspiration for my art comes from nature and the people that surround me.
