About Me

There are two sides of me

My sumi paintings are essentially monochromatic. I find boundless freedom in expressing myself through different shades of black, white and grey. I love to use minimal strokes capturing the essence while leaving enough white space for the viewer's imagination.

With acrylic, oil paint and watercolour, I feel like a 4 year old child rolling on the floor coating myself with all the different colours I love. Unlike my monochromatic chinese inkwash paintings, I fill the canvas with so much colour that it might be suffocating for you but I am having so much fun I just want to share it with you too.

This journey into the wonderful world of colours started after my cervical spinal injury. Being cooped up at home, recovering from the injury, I have found painting a healing process. Not only does it kill time, it also makes me feel productive instead of wasting away.

While Chinese inkwash painting brings a sense of calm, painting with western colour medium offers me a way to trail off into a whimsical world filled with joy, hope and boundless movement. Thankfully I have now almost totally recovered. You can follow my journey from gloom to glee by browsing my gallery
