The philosophy of Ka-do (Ikebana - the art of Japanese Flower Arranging) led me into the world of 'Zen' and 'The Way', 'The Do' (doh), the journey to enlightenment.

Is this creation perfect balance and counterbalance?

Is this the perfect balance I seek?

How can I introduce this into my work?

I studied 'Zenga', painting created in meditation, and began a personal journey working directly on to the silk using a variety of tools and brushes. My journey is far from finished and I am still trying to understand what it is I seek.
