I've been captivated by East Asian (ink wash) method of painting during my travels to Asia. Emerging in Tang dynasty China (618-907), ink wash painting uses black ink tonality and shading, rendering with varying thickness and types of strokes. The painting style does not put high importance on a precise depiction of a real scene or object but rather arising from the artist’s sudden inspiration when observing beautiful scenery.
I use ink wash painting method as an inspiration. In my works, I aim to convey Oriental landscape beauty, tranquility, human's harmony with nature. My paintings are the recollections from my travels around Taiwan, Japan, Tibet, China, Vietnam. Bamboo groves, temples, lotus ponds, cranes, herons, mountains, rivers, humans are my main painting elements.

paper becomes smooth again; enhances the colors; preserves the painting.
