Of Chinese ethnicity, I was born, and grew up in, Malaysia. I have worked and traveled widely internationally, and been exposed to different cultures of the East and the West. I now live in Wellington. I have been painting watercolour for over 25 years.
My paintings explore the natural beauty of the Western World, and are sometimes enhanced with intricate poetic Chinese calligraphy. Although I like to explore other painting media, most of my paintings are watercolour because I love its transparency, its fluidity, its mystic expression, and the way it complements the calligraphy.
