Melbourne, Australia

My painting practice is based on years of meticulous reproduction of the works of the Old Masters, Impressionists, and Post-Impressionist artists. This involved training under the tutelage of a local artist for a year, during which I focused exclusively on the works of Monet–namely his depictions of water lilies and gardens.  My background combined with my cultural heritage as a Chinese woman have informed my art and choice of subjects. I am especially drawn to the lotus flower as a reflection of my culture and a subject for further exploration of myself. I am fascinated with the lifecycle of the flower and how it morphs through the seasons; from the seedpod to the blooming baby lotus and the full-grown adult flower. My oil paintings are imbued with nostalgic old-charm beauty. They picture vibrantly-colored scenes that are sieved through the kaleidoscopic lens of my imagination and my eagerness to find natural beauty wherever I go.
