“Every action is a means of communication. Every living organism has its own way of communicating with the world around it.” This was what I told Tsong-Zung Chang, writer, and fonder of Hanart Gallery in Hong Kong in 1984, when my first one woman show was at The Fringe Club in Hong Kong. I am a Visual Artist who enjoys using different visual communication tools to tell you what I see, what I hear and what I think. I started off using drawing, painting, mix-media, and Fine Arts printing to express myself. The last few years, I began to engage in multimedia communication using digital video short film together with animation to tell my stories. I've enjoyed learning these new skills, and also love teaching people who are interested in visual communications.
