Zen and the Art of Chopping Carrots
Throughout my life I have dabbled in a variety of art forms such as music, metal sculpture, stain glass, pottery, and photography, but it wasn’t until I retired from teaching that I pursued painting and Zen practice in earnest. With the encouragement and guidance of Jake Sensei, the two practices have gradually become one. Most of my paintings have been inspired by dreams or computer generated images. Lately, I have begun creating video art, which seems to be informed by both my experiences with painting and Zen.
