Before Darlene discovered sumi, she attended Central Washington College to study education and discovered a talent in art. The abstract expressionist era pre-dominated the arts at that time. She experimented with different media, but favored the spontaneity of water-based paints. Through the years she has painted with acrylics and watercolors, but eventually returned to her passion - sumi-e.
At the present time, Darlene still studies the traditional Japanese sumi painting, but adds Asian watercolors. In the last few years she has added collage to her work as well as approaching her paintings in an abstract style to which she worked in earlier years.
Since sumi painting is not well-known in the Western world, Darlene's mission is to promote an awareness and understanding of sumi-e. She enters shows, teaches children and adult workshops, participates in festivals, and does demonstrations. She has won several awards including Best of Show at Seattle's Convention Center.
Darlene's journey as a sumi artist is passionate as she experiments with the black ink, watercolors, and collage materials in an innovative direction.
