Working with color pencils is very focused and meditative. It takes 5-6 layers of slow cross-hatching, making shadows, adding contours. I love the process, but what I have seen even more clearly is how beautifully educational nature illustration is, for both the artist and the viewer. It is such a powerful, wonderful meld of art & science. The facts are just as fascinating as its appearance.

When I raised my son in Japan, I was an English teacher. I like the art of teaching, but far prefer to teach art.

So on my 70th birthday a few days ago on June 3 I reached a 20-year-long goal and launched The Art Dojo for Nature Illustration here in Hilo,Hawai'i. Its discipline is similar to the training I received in karate: patience, focus, motor skills. Good for life, not just the dojo.

I will be working with Grades 4,5 and 6 students around the island to help create tile info-murals depicting life down the slopes of Mauna Kea, through the sunlight, twilight and midnight zones.

Being Artist of the Day is a perfect birthday present! Thank you, AFC! What timing, and a great way for me to get my story out there!
