For a while animals have been sneaking into my drawings.
My drawings were supposed to be abstract but the animals insisted.
And now this bird came. I know what it means. A children’s book wants to come into my world.
I used to be a graphic designer and an illustrator. I became involved with the Chan Meditation Center and studied meditation and Buddhist knowledge with the late Master Sheng-yen from Taiwan. For twelve years I was in a process of deepening my meditation. I had many more experiences and insights and my life changed. After having illustrated more than 40 children’s books and writing two of them, I left this career too and went to New York University to study art therapy.
