As we plan and rebuild to recovery, the new normal is going to be completely different than it was before. Now, working from home is extremely prevalent in our society and I believe it will continue to happen even after the pandemic. This might make it harder for people to socialize in person as everything was done through a screen. I do believe that because of COVID, technology has improved immensely as I am able to collaborate easily with my fellow artists from all over the globe. In addition, being able to work from the comfort of my own home has allowed my creativity to be limitless. This new normal is going to be different but society will easily adapt and learn for the better.
I’m an artist based in Los Angeles and Hong Kong. While my work is best described as abstract, I primarily draw inspiration from the stars, constellations, and planets of our solar system, including the Earth’s beautiful natural resources. My choice of tools often involves working with ink and acrylic as both mediums flow graciously and lusciously, helping me achieve my vision. Additionally, coming from a jewelry background, which requires a great deal of imagination and creativity, I’ve been able to transfer those skills to my work as an artist. I have found it easier to visualize my painting’s setting, placement, color tones, and orientation before my paintbrush hits the canvas.
After spending years designing jewelry pieces, I’ve found myself increasingly drawn to sparkle and sophistication. As such, when I paint, I look for bold colors to emit feelings of passion, freedom, and positive energy. To me, it’s most important to focus on formal color relationships and visual composition.
