I draw on my experience of acclimation to new environments. The change is my inspiration to create. My works are composed of dyes and mixed media, with recycled materials (such as Ikea furniture component wood panel, paper Hardboard, paint, oil etc.) and laden with abstract elements. I explores uncertainty and chance, letting my mediums "take their own course", abandoning all control, the wisdom of allowing things to happen as Chinese philosophy. My work is full of optimism. Life and color dance on my canvas. My brush strokes are not confined by the rigid discipline of traditions. It is spontaneous continuous movement; abandoned restrictions for serendipity.
