The main inspiration for my art comes undoubtedly from my martial arts teacher, Master Masaaki Hatsumi.  Continued study of the martial arts ignited a deep passion to explore all arts as a way to express those ideas and concepts often referred to as “inner secrets” that are not easily accessible through conversation or body movement alone.  Art has the ability, I think, to bypass the mind and speak directly to the heart.  As my teacher`s teachers often spoke the heart of the warrior is most important; Foster your heart, practice diligently your technique, and above all persevere, this is the true warrior (ninja).

For ease of reference, the art will be catagorized as

1. Ink Painting  水墨画

2. Calligraphy 書道

3. Pottery 陶芸
