Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Gouache and Acrylic on Paper.

Zen Chickens promote creativity.

Zen chickens are action calligraphy inspired by a 11-year practice of tai chi.
Zen chicken art is active meditation.
Zen chickens invite you to playful, relaxed, creativity.


I am inspired by Zen calligraphers, flower arranging, my Japanese pen pals, mail art, art history, and tai chi. I create a Zen Chicken every day as a form of meditation and creative connection to inner forces. I draw Zen Chickens quickly in the mornings to jump start my day with creative zing.

I hope viewers feel surprise, fun, creativity, and peacefully happy to share in my meditation practice.


Zen Chickens appear when India ink flows onto archival sometimes rough, sometimes smooth, 140 lb. watercolor paper. I spontaneously combine other art supplies to the emerging chickens. Added art media includes rubber stamping in archival inks and vermilion acrylgouache signature.

Enjoy collecting Zen Chickens.
One Zen Chicken is hatched per day.
