Artist Bio & Statement

 

In 2005 I took a series of art classes in Houston Texas during weekends for over a year, which was taught by Mr Xinsheng Wang, an internationally known artist. Before that my main artistic interest was shooting pictures.

Painting offered me a new way to express my artistic feelings and creativity. Oil and acrylic are the mediums that I have employed the most. I particularly like using palette knife to construct impressionistic effects by using intensive colors, rough textures, and the expressive layers.

I have participated various shows mostly in Texas including the Lone Star Art Guild's annual conventions. My works were featured in ads and websites promoting Texas Red art festivals. Frame Gallery in Bryan Texas currently represents my works. Some pieces have been acquired by private collectors. In 2016 I illustrated for a poetry book published in Taiwan. The beautiful poems were written by Irene Su.
