Artist and art historian Amy Dyson emphasizes minimalism in her art. She has a preference for single brushstroke paintings and Ensō. Dyson's Zen approach is always "in the moment" and she often shares the origins of her techniques and methodologies to studio guests.
East Studio at One Zen Place
"My favorite time in the studio is when my husband, John Ryan, is playing piano because his original music deeply inspires me. When I listen to John's music, I am moved to create art. One of my most frequent chop-seals is engraved with the ideogram, 'Created with the music of John Ryan'. We have demonstrated our arts together in many live performances, but we are now opening our studios to the world as we progress to live-streaming podcasts from One Zen Place - Art and Music Studios."

Those who see.
Those who see when they are shown.
Those that do not see.
