fullsizeoutput_1143Michael Andrew Doherty creates visual art, shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute), and music from his studio, Blue Cloud Mountain, located in mountains near Palmer Lake Colorado.  He also composes music, essays and poetry.  A library manger by day, he is also working toward a book on the intersection of Taoism and management.

You  will find both shakuhachi and ink/brush paintings for sale on this site, inspired by years of Zen and shakuhachi/honkyoku experience and investigation into silence and sound.  You will also find poetry, photography and at some point in the future, a recording or two.

May you be well, happy and peaceful.
