Yolanda: A Sumi-e Demonstration

(Please visit or pick up a copy of her DVD at A Sumi-e Dream Journey demonstrates Yolanda's common sense approach to the complex Japanese art of Sumi-e. She demonstrates and guides the viewer through the basic strokes: The Four Gentlemen and their boon companions Dragonflies Butterflies and the all important Yo-Bird. Then she leads the student into the impressionistic realm of the Dream Journey. Over a period of some 45 years Yolanda has practiced the delicate art of Sumi-e running the gamut of experience: teaching internationally painting murals and wall hangings on commission adorning ceramics and textiles and lecturing on TV and live appearances.
