Beauty of Ink Free Calligraphy Workshop with Debra Self

Wednesday, April 4th 2018, 2:00pm to 4:00pm
Graduate Theological Union, 2400 Ridge Road Berkeley, CA 94709

Debra Self’s work blends ancient and new, demonstrating timeless themes. She uses traditional Chinese single xuan paper, brushes and bamboo pens and mixed inks along with Western paints in compositions using Eastern and Western art sensibilities. “Storm Within” (on exhibit) abstracts the characters for "raging fire" in a burning and wrathful work filled with strong and energetic strokes that have been used partially in mirror image. She has exhibited in juried shows in California, New Mexico, New York, New Jersey, China, Thailand, and Australia.

Debra Self has been practicing calligraphy for 16 years. She studied with Sun Wuk Kim in Los Angeles, CA and Tom Chow in Los Angeles, CA. She attended an intensive program at the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou China.
