Artist & Mystic in Japan


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.
