Ricoo explains about her calligraphy:
« Sho », Japanese calligraphy, consist of lines and dots along with a “silence”.
Using black and white colours, the white from the Washi, or Japanese paper and a black from the Sumi, or ink, create a world of stillness.

Upon which, the wind of the artist’s expression blows and brings movement into the paper.
The scenery that comes into sight, the images that arise in my mind, and with each poem and each word, my bring movement through gusting winds of expression into the canvas in creating my calligraphy.
In my calligraphy word and image flow effortlessly back and forth. Like the wind and the sailing boat. In my calligraphy, I try to find an art of expressive gesture and the quietness.
