I practiced many art forms as a young girl. Around 1990 – twelve years into my Aikido practice, my interest in Japanese Zen calligraphy was awakened by two Zen monk friends, Kazuaki Tanahashi and John Stevens. Over 45 years later, I continue my study of Japanese brushwork through its many forms: kanji, kana, big brush, small brush, and hand- made brush, as well as classical forms and wild, ‘in-the-moment’ Zen brush practice on [he side of Mt. Baldy. The versatility of the brush enables the artist to express life in a stroke. It is a brush with life.
