As a painter, I have a profound interest in the Asian tradition of Thangka painting. This technique has enabled me to refine my style to narrative painting. My depictions of nature scenes represent the philosophy of harmony, beauty and tranquility. Through my painting, I express a poetic place of comfort. Rocks, clouds, water, trees, flowers and animals are featured prominently in Thangka painting. Each element expresses a property that follows us through life. Rocks symbolize the steadfastness, clouds depict the air and the spirit of life, water symbolizes life’s abundance, and nature shows us the interdependence of all beings.
