Years later, Concordia helped nourish and grow those seeds. I would go on to earn two BFA degrees, the first in studio arts (1987-1992), followed by a specialization in printmaking (1992-1996). During my nine years (part-time) at Concordia, it became like a second home to me; I spent countless hours there practising my techniques, developing my images and searching for my artistic voice. Looking back, I was very fortunate to have many outstanding teachers who saw something special in my artwork.
Today, I am a Montreal-based printmaker artist and, since 2000, a regular member of Atelier Circulaire, a Mile End-district facility specializing in the creation and exhibition of etchings, lithographs and digital prints.
I will always call Montreal home even though I was not born here. It is the place I feel most comfortable, where I can communicate in Chinese, English and French all in the same breath. Forty-plus years of living in the city have instilled in me an open-mindedness touching all aspects of my life. I look forward to the next 40.
