My theme is “Expression of my inner mind through nature.” Nature is essential in my life; it heals, soothes and inspires me to paint what is in my mind. From nature, I extract a few dominant colors as well as bold, powerful, organic lines, and I emphasize empty space in my compositions. To create original pieces, I combine Oriental and Western materials and ideas. I believe that I can make unique paintings by incorporating my Oriental background with my experience here in the West. So, it is my objective to make new, creative works through this combination of contemporary western art concepts and Oriental art techniques. What I hope for the audience, when they see my work, is that they are attracted by the power, emotion and healing qualities of nature. So, I will continue to investigate how I can make harmonious and sensitive abstract works incorporating nature and emotion together with East and West.
