"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.

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.
