Panom and the Stone of Light is a children's story about elephants and humans. PANOM is the great elephant matriarch who descends from the heavens to watch over all earthly elephants. She carries with her a magnificent stone of light that is eventually discovered by a few humans who believe the stone to be a source of power and wealth. They conspire to steal the stone for their own purposes. This first story in the parables of Panom illuminates the need for better understanding and appreciation of the natural world and all of its inhabitants, it's generosity and potential. Panom and the Stone of Light is a lovely Buddhist parable for both young readers and adults alike.

He began exhibiting his paintings at Foster-White Gallery in Seattle in 1973. Over the course of the last four decades, he has exhibited his paintings in the United States and in Europe. His creative contributions have also been expressed in writing, poetry, multi-media and film. In 1976 he won First Place in Painting at the Pacific Northwest Annual and in 1979 the Hassam Speicher Award at the Academy of Arts and Letters, New York, New York.
