Location: Reno, United States

As an adopted child of ex-pat American Chinese parents, I grew up in Hong Kong hearing stories from Chinese history and mythology. My parents impressed upon me the importance of knowing my cultural heritage, as well as respecting the traditions of the past. As such, I use the millenia-old traditional technique of Chinese brush painting on silk, the gongbi ("working brush") genre of figure painting, wherein multiple layers of light washes are laboriously applied to shade and highlight shape and form, and to build up the intensity of colors. I use mostly Chinese and Japanese watercolors, some gouache and some acrylics. I work mainly on Japanese silk, but I also paint on rice paper. Symbolism plays an important role in my work.
Through my art, I hope to share Chinese history and mythology with others, to bridge the cultural divide between East and West. It is also my wish to help American parents with adopted Chinese children teach them about their cultural heritage.
