It should be about the art, but it's almost a must for curiosity, to know a little about the person who created the art. So, I was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I am Canadian Chinese. I have B.F.A. in Fine Art from OCAD U, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I am a part time artist at most, only because I like to eat, and need a roof over my head. I'm here like so many artists today, to visually share what I create.  
I am grateful that I have acquired art that I love, artwork that other artists have created, and have inspired me. I hope I am able to do the same.  I hope my art inspires someone, and brings the love of owning artwork to them.  Even if it isn't mine.  Buy art that you love.

There is the real reward, for one's art to be cherished and taken care of, passed down, discussed and to become part of a story.  Part of a family.

I create art. I make crafts. I will always be an artist, paid or not.
I am an artist who creates in the moment. I am an artist that takes time. I rarely know what a piece of work will look like before it is complete. I work in whatever medium takes my fancy at the time. I mostly work in acrylic. But I also like other mediums, it just depends on my mood.

I do what I can, on my own to promote my artwork.
I am one of the millions of artists creating in the art world, so I thank you, very, very much for taking the time out to view my work, when you have probably never heard of me...But now you have!

In my process, I am inspired by everything, people, nature, dreams & desires, urban/industrial environment, music, love, emotions and random thought, the whole wide world.  My subject matter for my paintings and drawings, are anywhere from landscape, figurative, abstract, collage, and sculpture, expressed and processed in my work, using various mediums. I hope you might find in my art, something to represent your personal choice and expression of fine art, through one of my pieces, and I look forward to being a part of your Private Collection.
