Welcome to my website, home to select paintings from my portfolio.

My husband Keith and I met and married in my home city of Hong Kong. We moved to the US in 2008, and are now living in Las Vegas with our two kitties Chiko and Perry, and our Corgi Mischka, and our beautiful son Ivan who was born on 18th June 2012.

Painting is my life; it has been since I was three years old, when I first recognised something unusual in my crayons and oil pastels, how these small, colourful objects withheld the intrinsic power of creation. My fascination with the graceful mysteries found in Nature is combined with 15 years of training in classical ballet, and it is through these pivotal components that my inspirations take root.

I’m constantly striving to do something different – exploring diverse emotions and scenarios, while experimenting with new techniques and mediums – always in effort to tell a story, or to honor one potent, emotional moment.

I endeavour intensively to make every painting unique and exciting.  A growing archive of detailed walk-throughs can be found here as well.  So stay tuned, and enjoy the site!
