I paint feelings. We all know what is ‘feelings’, it is very real, but is it?
I always believe that art is for capturing the ambiguousness in life as the truth is found in the unknown. As a sentimental girl, I feel things deeply in everyday-life and art is a way out for me to express all my feelings and connect with the others.
Most of my artwork is in abstract form as it illustrates my feelings in a very authentic way. I have all these pain and love in me that I need to express to relief myself from holding all the feelings within.
As a Hong Kong citizen that lives under a lot of pressure, I imagine a lot of us are suffering from hiding all these emotions inside and not letting them out. I hope that through my paintings, audience can find a sense of calmness, resonance and ease the heaviness away from the heart. Almost like how I felt when I was painting. I feel more certain and peaceful when I let myself express without holding back. This is why I love to paint, it allows us to express however we want and there is no right and wrong in art.
The use of colours in my artwork represents how I was at that particular moment in my life, it is like a diary as I expose the inner side of me fully in my paintings.
Welcome to my world, please feel my paintings.

Memories are just as vague as feelings.
All these scattered memories are fading, slowly and gracefully.
There’s tenderness within you my dear.
This is my sinking heart.
Drowning, falling into the ocean.
My beloved ocean.
