My passion in art started when I was a kid. As long as I can remember, I can just sit and paint for hours. Through the years, I painted with various media.
My main focus shifted to watercolour and Chinese painting during my stay in Hong Kong where I met 2 great masters. They inspired me to get into these fascinating water-based media.
I think my drawing, oil painting and Chinese calligraphy skills that I have developed since I was a child certainly have helped me pick up other painting media skills very quickly. After that, I mostly taught myself and experiment new ways of painting. Several master workshops that I have taken also inspired me to explore new styles. Love that art is limitless. Every step is an enjoyment and excitement to me.
After moving back to Auckland in 2013, I have participated in different group exhibitions and had my own solo exhibitions.
As a travel artist, I love to travel to culture rich places in Europe. Many of my paintings are scenes of places that I have been to. I found that there is no better way to capture the atmosphere of a moment than a painting. Two of my “Istanbul Sunset” series has won the 2016 1st Prize and 2017 4th Prize at Auckland Royal Easter Art Show, the other has won the 2015 3rd Prize at AWS annual exhibition. My “Summer in Sorrento, Italy” has won the 2016 1st Prize at AWS annual exhibition.
I like to paint in impressionistic, atmospheric and contemporary style. I also love to capture movements and actions. Beside landscapes, horses, birds, ships are also my favorite painting subjects. Several of my horse paintings have won awards.
I am very lucky to be able to teach many others to share my passion in art through painting, cooking and writing since 2006.
My paintings are held in private collections locally and overseas. If you wish to commission me to paint one of your favourite travelling destination, please e-mail .
