When I experienced my sudden artistic eruption in 2013, the third floor of my 300-year-old minka in Japan became the space where my mysterious new abilities continue to evolve.
Cedar lined and flooded with natural light, my studio-sanctuary looks out over the trees and hills, the changing seasons a constant joy.
Canvases, tools and working tubes of acrylic paint are stored under the sloping eaves.
A digital piano, my first piano ever in my life, stands surprisingly in one corner, and the working space is warmed in winter by the chimney of the huge, masonry heater built by hand on the first floor.
From 2015, Catrien Ross paintings can be viewed at her private gallery in Energy Doorways™ center, at the foot of Mount Fuji.
Honkohji, a Buddhist temple in Japan's heartland, also displays Catrien Ross art in a permanent collection of over 100 paintings.
Private viewing can be arranged by appointment.
Catrien Ross solo art shows are held throughout the year in various locations in Japan.CONNECT
