Art is my process to transform my experiences in life into creativity- from pain into positive energy. At age 13 I began taking art lessons in Hong Kong. My journey was interrupted at age 19 when I was sexually abused by a painting professor in Skidmore College. It motivated me to organize anti-rape projects and to set up the first women’s center in Hong Kong. I emigrated back to NY in 91 and resumed painting in 03 by entering the NYS Court Employees Arts Show. Winning the first prize in the 04 show and 2 other prizes encouraged me to paint. Art is my visual memoir of my bi-cultural life with every painting representing a stage, reflecting my inner self in an abstract form. Influenced by impressionism, I was inspired by my diving and travelling experiences in Cozumel and other places where I found peace and tranquility underwater.
