I title each of my paintings based on the total of lotus embossed stamps on each piece,
and I include the exact number as part of my artists signature.

My work is holistic and environmental: I distill black lotus ink donations to the  temples. The brown washes I create derive from dried lotus pods. My crayon skies are created from natural beeswax formed  from petal ash. A hint of orange within the sunrise comes from shattered colonial roof tiles I collected after a severe storm in Battambang, Cambodia. The 24 karat gold I purchase from the artisan gold leaf makers in Mandalay, Myanmar or Burma. The glimmer of pure gold leaf I apply to these works  reaches through us to show us a new road.
