Artist Statement
We sense our surroundings.  We choose pieces.  We shape and join, bringing art to life.
"Shin" is our shaping:  the planed wood, the squared post, the angular shrine in the Japanese Garden; my first panel.
"So" is naturalness, original:  the sand, stones and wood, nature's pieces for a garden; my third panel.
"Gyo" is the middle:  the raked sand, the mix from nature to formal Garden.
Feel Shin-Gyo-So, create for joy, and Art Takes Shape.
