I have always enjoyed drawing and began developing my artistic skills at an early age. I can remember spending lunch breaks at the library drawing with a fellow artist in primary school. Even in High School my favourite past time would be go to the art room and paint and draw(in between my 4 unit math studies of course).
Art has always been my haven where I could be myself and express myself freely.
Where does my enthusiasm and talent come from?
My grandfather was a gifted artist who spent much of his life painting beautiful chinese watercolours. My father also had a gift and flair for the ancient art of Chinese Calligraphy. My own sister has a talent for painting still lifes in pastels.
