I love painting since I was a child. Painting can bring happiness and drive away loneliness to soothe the soul. I love Sydney like a second home. I have lived here for 32 years, and have gained a lot of love and experienceshere. Currently I live in Gladesville and run an art school and a gallery, educating children in art. This often draws surprises and inspiration. I paint a variety of themes and unlimited styles. Anything i like, anything which touches my heart, I draw and paint. I specialise in contemporary portraiture and figure painting in a creative mode. My emotions are drawn from Chinese and Western cultures.
