Fine art or Illustration ... that is the question. I am not new to hearing that my style is very illustration from fine art galleries and from directors of illustration used to tell me that my style is too much of fine art. Where do I belong? I'm not sure where to categorize my style, but as long as I do what I enjoy to do...that's all that matters to me.

Opening a blog account was something very new and challenging event (?) for me.
I am a very self-kept person.
Opening up and talking about my thoughts and sharing my arts with other people isn't everyday life scene for me.
But here I am now uploading my art and talking about it.
My son got busy with stamps and ink pads on his sister when I stepped out of my studio for couple of minutes. And my daughter was posing for her brother's masterpiece.
I get my inspirations from my family, especially my son and daughter. They give me a great inspirations and ideas. To all mommy artists and crafters out there, let's doodle and create and be HAPPY~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I took some photo classes back in college. I loved the process of developing films and printings.
After college, I stopped walking around with cameras. A few year later when I grabbed the camera, it reminded my love for photography. Mainly I grabbed the camera to capture the moments for my children and it brought my love for photography once again .

There is something about bird and flower theme that I just can't get away (?). I'm not a person who loves to garden day and night. Many times, I don't know the names of the flowers. I guess I know little more about the birds. I used to hand fed birds. My family ran a pet store. After closing the store for the night, they brought baby birds home everyday. Baby birds need special cares just like human babies. They need to be fed every 4 hours. They have to be heated to the right temperature. I fed and tamed the birds. Maybe that's what makes me feel comfortable and drawn to bird and flower themes.

We moved to our new home a couple of months ago. Since it's a new town, it took forever to receive the internet service. During that time I travelled 20 miles back and forth to check my e-mail. But couldn't up load any of my paintings or pictures. If it was an argent matter, I drove to Panera Bread with my two kids and my husband. A little e-mail check outing. It's surprising to look back that people were happy without the internet just about two decades ago.
My daughter is winking one of her eye saying she is a pirate. More unpacking to do.
