Haigaonline is especially pleased to present our own resident sumi-e artist Mary Rodning in collaboration with her husband Charles. Dr. Charles B. Rodning is an emininent physician and a professor of surgery at the University of South Alabama in Mobile. In 'real life', however, he is an award winning poet whose haiku are widely published (for Mary's biography, see the About Haigaonline staff pages).

Charles' and Mary's haiku and sumi-e collaborations include Elan Vital-a Chapbook of Oriental Poetry and Sumi-E Painting (Rutland VT: Tuttle, 1988), Papering Dreams: Haiku and Sumi-e Painting (Whispering Pines, NC: Scots Plaid, 1994) and an origami haiga book featured in the summer 2005 issue of Simply Haiku.
