I moved to London, The U.K. seven years ago from China, to complete an MBA in luxury brand marketing with my beloved dog, Heidi. Having studied drawing and painting for my undergraduate degree in fashion design, I picked up a brush to paint his portrait to help me process my grief over losing Heidi. Since then I’ve started to love painting and made the decision to be a painter for the rest of my life. Through focusing on landscape, my artwork expresses my feelings about nature, which I believe is a great source of inspiration, healing and positivity. I like to transmit the landscape onto my canvas using a palette of complementary colours that convey my understanding of nature, which is a mix of reality and my philosophy. All life is like connecting the changing seasons, learning to handle the winter, cultivate the seeds or dreams of hope in the spring and celebrating the joy in the harvest autumn.
My art is about the journey of inner discovery through my soul and emotions, and the patterns of dialogue and connection between me and nature. I believe the choice of light and colours reveals the truth of a painter’s life. I am inspired by the work of impressionists such as Claude Monet and Van Gogh.
