Mayee Futterman specializes in Chinese Brush Painting. It is the foundation of all oriental brush arts and has strongly influenced Western painting. The dynamic, unpredictable, and sensorial interaction of brush, ink, water, and rice paper through the artist’s hand is indeed a transformative and enlightening experience. Mayee’s teaching is strongly founded on classical Chinese brush painting skills, techniques, philosophy, and subject matter; while bringing a contemporary approach, influences from her multi-cultural experience, and a rigor and aesthetic sensibility from her architecture and urban design background.
A large selection of Mayee’s work is in the collection of California Hospital Medical Center and permanently exhibited at the Los Angeles Center for Women’s Health. Her award winning work is also in private collections in the US, Canada, Middle East, Singapore, and Philippines. Mayee studied and trained under professor and master brush artist, Dr. Ning Yeh at UCLA, Coastline College, and Cerritos College. They have co-authored five instructional art books. Mayee has a Master of Architecture II from UCLA and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Cum Laude from the University of the Philippines.
