Make cancer less scary-UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center donation event

Couple of months ago I was contact by someone from UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center via my Etsy shop. They are hosting an event called “Make cancer less scary”. Generally they are asking for artist’s artwork images and let people vote for their favorite one. Each vote comes with 5 dollar donation to the cancer center.

You can find all participating artist’s artworks here.

Please take a moment and check out their website and maybe some donations at will.

Couple of years ago I lost one family member because of cancer. I still remember the confusion and powerless feeling when I heard the news. I offered my help but there was nothing I can help rather than comforting words. I hope this time I can somehow help the Cancer Center by participating this event.

Thank you.

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.
