Artist Statement

Since retiring from a public school career, Chizuko has been determined to draw and paint as much as possible. Each of her paintings reflects life experience, places she has been, or places she longs to visit. Her works run the gamut of traditional landscapes to abstract representations. Through years of trial and error she has found a niche in how colors play to one another and how geometric shapes resolve and bring a valid image to the canvas.
