My first official award

I haven’t thought about submitting my work to any art contest to get any award until this January. When I revise my website and try to add more pages, I want one page as “Achievement“. My mom’s computer games always have one catalog called “Achievement” and my mom loves to unlock them one by one. So I am thinking this maybe a good time to try. In my mind January is still early. But when I search for “art contest” online I find out some of them have deadlines in couple of days.


I am shocked! I haven’t felt this deadline rush since my Master’s thesis. I get into action and submit a few that fit me. Well at least I think it would fit me. LOL I never expect any response or results until March. I also submitted my materials to some local galleries last December but they need maximum 6 months to process.

However, to my surprise, Art Show International replies to me in a week! I am happy that they like my work. And here is my very first official award.

This is a small step but big moment for me. They also kindly offer me to hold a solo show on their website which I’d love to. I just need to finish my artist statement in time XD.

According to their email, the exhibition of winning artwork will be displayed on their walls from 15th February – 15th March 2021. After the conclusion of that exhibition, the artwork will be archived in the gallery of eminent award winners.

I am so looking forward to it~!

I hope you can have time to check their website at that time. I believe is the black panther one ^_^

Keep moving and don’t stop~❤

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
