Tender Beginning


I sometimes feel the root of joyous, loving living in the Blue Mountains culture stems from the beautiful trees that surrounds us.

I wanted to represent the act of planting a tree as a tender beginning for everyone to be part of nature, society and creativity.

From two sets of hands cupping a small amount of fertile soil sprouts a miniature tree.

Dot painting reminds us to pay respect to country in the traditional way.

Waratahs are symbolic of the fierce passion the locals feel for this region.

Born in China, I am a Chinese-Japanese artist who has lived in Australia for 30 years.

My style of work is often classical and realistic. My usual medium involves acrylic paint on stretched canvas. I have been making art since my childhood.

I have studied art at HSC level and at Bankstown Art Society, Julian Ashton Art School and the National Art School (NAS).

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Communication (Media Arts and Production) from the University of Technology, Sydney and am a qualified filmmaker.

I also have a special interest in manga and am an aspiring writer.
