Artist Statement

I appreciate the opportunities provided by the BAC to participate in the town’s art events without being a professional artist. My passion is to share the pure love of art with everyone in the community. As an amateur, I look forward to observing and learning from the many talented artists in Brookline.

I started acrylic painting in late 2018 when I volunteered to do a mural painting at the John Pierce school. It was a big challenge and a brand new learning experience, but I truly enjoyed the process and continued to paint afterwards. The focus of my paintings vary over time, with inspirations from everyday life observations, museum visits, book reading, online materials, and family/friend support. What’s truly important to me is the process itself of observing, perceiving, and expressing through painting, which works for me like a meditation to reach inner peace. As for the style of my paintings, I am not sure if I have one, but I strive to achieve an overall effect of subtlety and artistry with a personal touch.
