I’m a Chinese-born, Australian-grown, Sydney-based artist.
Having suffered from depression, art has been my way not only to healing, but also to self-discovery, and living a most authentic life.
Through painting, I was to summon the courage to look deep into myself, touch my soul and reconnect with who I truly am.
It’s still a journey and a process. And painting is what I use to navigate this sometimes bumpy sometimes smooth path of life. When I’m not painting, you’ll find me teaching kids’ art classes, and making healthy vegan family meals for my two little toddlers.
I hope you enjoy my paintings as much as I did creating them.
Feel free to send me a message if you’d like to commission me to create a special portrait or figure painting for you or your loved one.
