The City of Enumclaw's Gallery 2014 presents: Darlene Dihel: SUMI-E Artist Essence
Darlene Dihel, SUMI-E artist, has studied this ancient art for several decades, teaching herself by studying books from the masters as there were no sumi teachers in places where she lived. She was born in Seattle, graduated from Renton High School and received a teaching degree from Central Washington College. Teaching school on Kwajalein, in the Marshall Islands of the South Pacific was the highlight of her career. Coming full circle, Darlene moved to Gig Harbor in 1998. She joined the prestigious group called Puget Sound Sumi Artists (PSSA) and has been an active member ever since. One of her goals is to share this beautiful, Japanese art with others. Participating in local festivals, teaching classes and workshops, and doing demonstrations are ways that she shares.

SUMI PAINTING workshop with Darlene Dihel
...
Darlene Dihel will be presenting a one-day traditional sumi painting workshop with an added element - the merging of sumi techniques with a holiday theme.Sumi-e, in Japanese means, "ink painting".Traditionally black ink on white paper, simple, elegant and serene, representing not only a unique and beautiful form of art, but a philosophy as well.Simplicity is the most outstanding characteristic of Sumi-e in which an economy of brush strokes is used to communicate the essence of the subject.It is a style of painting from the heart - spontaneous, non-intellectual and in its essence having form, stroke, vitality, and rhythmic motion.
Darlene Dihel, a native Washingtonian, is an active member of the Puget Sound Sumi Artists.Examples of her work can be seen in the Coos Art Museum Rental-Sales Gallery.
