WEEKEND 2: MIDMA
OCT 22 & 23

"I bought a piece of Tisha's art for my bedroom as it relaxes me and makes me feel good"
" I love Impressionism & Brush Painting. I have studied Chinese Brush Painting & Ikebana for 26 years. So you will see a lot of flowers in my art!!! My love of color & beautiful landscapes is expressed in my Impressionist paintings. I mainly paint with Chinese watercolors on rice papers."
I have been having fun lately painting more Impressionist and abstract style paintings and experimenting painting on thick, color rice paper and wood. Abstract style painting is not something I regularly do but I wanted to expand and see what would "come from within" after years of brush painting study.
Art studies include: numerous visual art media with a focus primarily on Japanese and Chinese brush painting, studying for 15 years under Lampo Leong and recently with Master Kan Kwok-Fan.
Exhibits: * Juried shows at Filoli’s House and Gardens in San Mateo; Back to the Picture Art Gallery, San Francisco; Asian Society of Arts of America, San Francisco; Lingnan Art Association of Northern California exhibition at the Silicon Valley Art Center September 2013.
*Community sites including the Journey Center in Santa Rosa & multiple cafes, hotels and other venues through ArtworksSF, McKinley Art Solutions. Paintings and Cards are sold at 3 venues in San Francisco and one in Rhode Island.
*Multiple floral design shows through the Northern California Ikenobo Ikebana Society in San Francisco.
I am a member of the Lingnam Art Association and Committee member of Artspan Open Studio.
In 1989 I founded the national and international award winning Health Through Art Project, a 25year old project that promotes community health through the submitted artwork of Bay Area citizens on outdoor and transit billboards and other multi-media venues. (www.healththroughart.org). This also included being a Founding Committee Member of Art.Rage.Us- the art and writing of women living with breast cancer. HTA "pulled" together my love for & belief in art for healing, my background in Nursing & Public Health, & my Spiritual and Political orientations,
Health Through Art is committed to validating art and artists as social change agents, believing in the power of art to heal communities and individuals alike.
