"I bought a piece of Tisha's art for my bedroom as it relaxes me and makes me feel good"
" I love Impressionism & Asian Brush Painting. I have studied Chinese Brush Painting and Ikenobo Ikebana for 32 years. So you will see a lot of flowers in my art!!! My love of color and beautiful landscapes is expressed in my Impressionist paintings. I mainly paint with Chinese Pigment watercolors and Ink on rice papers."
I have been experimenting lately with painting on Gold Leaf Paper as well as thick, color rice paper and wood.

Art studies include: numerous visual art media with a focus primarily on Japanese and Chinese brush painting, studying with Mr Yoshie, for 15 years under Lampo Leong and recently with Master Kan Kwok-Fan.

I am a member of the Lingnam Art Association and was a Committee member of Artspan Open Studios Committee from 2011 to 2019

In 1989 I founded the national and international award winning Health Through Art Project, a 30 year 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.
