More calligraphy and hand lettering
One of my specialties (above and below) is brush calligraphy, using Japanese sumi-e technique instead of a pen.
My brush calligraphy is what led me to dance. In order to improve my Asian ink calligraphy,
I studied T'ai Chi with Jackie Ling Wong. It was my first experience with body movement, and was
a revelation. It soon led to Kendo (Japanese fencing), and then to dance. (Jackie also moved on to dance.)
