“I chose sumi painting or it chose me. When I was studying art at the University of Washington, George Tsutakawa taught a class in this art form that I took and then continued to work with visiting calligraphers and painters from Japan who had come to teach at the University while I was there. I graduated in 1976 with two degrees, one in fine art and one in art history. In 1984 I continued my studies in Asian brush and Ink Painting as a graduate student at the Zhejiang Academy of Fine Art in Hangzhou, People’s Republic of China."
“I have painted in this time honored tradition for 40 years. There have been exhibitions of my art in the United States, Japan and China. I have taught classes in Sumi Painting, also known as Asian Brush and Ink Painting, for over 30 years. It is a pleasure to share this art form and pass it onto other people who want to paint with brush and ink. My art expresses the classic sumi painting tradition and my own contemporary use of it which has been influenced by modern Western art, the Northwest School and the region where I live.” -Angie Dixon
