As a child, I learned Japanese calligraphy at school. When I was growing up, I watched my father, a calligrapher, practicing and saw how he approached his work. We talked about the meaning behind each proverb he was writing or about his practice itself. We still do. Together with Sumi-e (Japanese ink painting), Japanese calligraphy has become an activity that immediately connects me to my foundation as an individual and artist.
