Inspired by my first visit to Japan, seen here in the Kenroku-en (兼六園) Garden in Kanazawa, I've created a series of works in watercolor, many with collage elements including stamps, rich Mulberry papers and other found materials collected in Japan

My mission is to capture and share the magic and mystery of the Japanese aesthetic and rich culture through this series of Asian Abstractions.

I've long been a student of art history and the Asian aesthetic and culture, the inspiration for this series of Asian Abstractions. I try to bring a sense of quiet contemplation to my work, sometimes combining art and haiku poetry as once done in the ancient tradition of haiga.
Sun, wind, rain, land, sky --
The Earth is sacred to me
To ponder and paint.
In addition to the original art works shown on my Store page, I offer handmade, one-of-a-kind journals -- small treasures -- covered in fine Japanese Mulberry papers.
Collage, as an art form, offers creative ways of combining textures, colors, found objects, and other design elements into engaging works of art. Are you interested in taking a collage workshop? Email me: Bonnie.Binkert@gmail.com
