Commissions

These paintings were commissioned by Buddhist practitioners. We dialogued throughout the creative process. I am happy to follow traditional iconography or to depart from tradition as requested. Works often include elements of personal significance. For example, Prajnaparamita's seahorses are not a traditional symbol, but are there for personal inspiration, and in a painting of Amoghasiddhi, Buddha of the North, (not shown here) I was asked to include the Pole Star and the northern constellations.
