In my life journey over the past 25 years from Kota Kinabalu on the island of Borneo to Beijing, China and Manila, Philippines to Whistler, B.C. to and now to a quiet town south of Seattle called Ruston in the USA , my own introspective path and the colourful lives of the people and artists I have met have been the biggest influences in my work.
Since forming my company YinspirationArt in 2001, I introduced my first line of journals and purses in early 2012 which with my prints enjoy distribution into 21 retail outlets in North America.
2013 marked the beginning of my teaching career when I was invited to do an Artist’s Residency with at-risk young teens at a middle school in Hood River. It changed my life and now I have artist’s residencies scheduled for the coming year between Whistler, BC and Hood River, Oregon in addition to my drawing and painting teaching at Open Arts Studios.
