Workshops Conducted:

If painting is music, then I play it on my canvases. My calligraphic symphonies run in low keys, smoothly. Suddenly, they move into a higher pitch, with thick strokes to surprise....and then, just as suddenly, they resume their soothing melodies. This is how I work on my canvases. I subtly divide space by writing small pieces around the focal point and fill the focal point with a large word.
