So for those of you who haven't been in close touch with me and seen my art lately, here it is. Ever since I left Asia, I've been struggling to find a way to incorporate my asian childhood (and all those years worshipping some of the world's great paintings in Taiwan's Palace Museum) into my own art work. I studied brush painting, and honestly, that's one incredibly hard art form to do well. I gave up on that and studied western art. But I was never quite satisfied. A few years ago, a friend introduced me to stained-glass mosaic and, for some reason, that was where my answer lay. I've been doing these Asian-themed pieces, but in a Western medium and with Western color. It makes me incredibly happy.
