Sumi-e (Oriental Brush Painting on rice paper)

Sumi-e is an artistic interpretation of various aspects of nature and life, done in ink-like “sumi” and watercolor on rice paper. The “e” in sumi-e means painting in Japanese. Ms. Waite has always loved the beauty and peacefulness of nature, especially flowers and birds. After working in oil for many years, she discovered the freedom of working on rice paper, combining her interest in art and nature as well as reflecting her experience in Japan.
