Her art is capable of being evaluated from many points of view in terms of decoding the subject matter and style. The selected media will influence the message.

She lived on Hainan Island for many years and has traveled around more than 45 countries. Her rich and special life experience has lent her art both diversity and a uniquely complex style which mixes Western and Eastern cultural influences. She is developing a special insight into both contemporary and traditional cultures, and blending these with her own life experiences. All the art exhibitions she has experienced continually make her critically reflect and ask what is contemporary art, and why and how can she contribute to this area as an artist.
My portfoilo is entitled ‘Beyond-Soul of the city’ as I am concerned to look into the future at potential scenarios and conflicts between human beings and their urban and natural environment. The inner fusion, spirit and the related influence.My art is capable of being evaluated from many points of view in terms of decoding the subject matter and style. And the selected media will influence the message.
I am particularly interested in using oil painting, sculpture, and mixed media to demonstrate my ideas in both a rational and emotional way.
