About the Artist
I utilize my bicultural background as a teaching artist with disability and expertise in both Chinese and Western visual art. I earned a M.F.A. in painting and drawing at Texas Tech University in 1994. Currently, I am an artist based on Pennsylvania. My polio disability experience strengthens my personality and sensibility in art making. My art enables me to express my feelings about the limitation of my physical mobility through the symbolic imagery of flying, dancing, roaming, and transcending. My disability affects me in pursuing the spiritual freedom in my work. Contrasting colors with free-flowing patterns add to the feeling of engagement with rather than separation from my lived bicultural experience, and transcendental belief in Zen Buddhism. My paintings have been exhibited in more than 115 international and national exhibitions including United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Japan, China, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Hong Kong.
