Each chapter of life is challenging and valuable. Experiencing in social changes from capitalism to communism in Vietnam, now I am living in a democratic society in Canada. These have matured me with knowledge to adventure life with wisdom.
I am a visual artist doing variety of artwork including caricature, quick sketches of urban scene, portrait, superhero, paintings and pumpkin carving. My main focus is doing caricature for special events and teaching art programs. In addition, I am on the Workshop Committee of the Calgary Sketch Club. Also, I am one of the founder members of ArtsCan Cooperative for Artists. Striving for opportunities, I participate in various activities, exhibitions and events such as a court sketch artist for CTV, art instructor for different schools and organizations. I have painted portraits for Grade 6 graduates for four years. My most ambitious accomplishment was drawing 147 Grade 9 graduates for two years. These devotions have granted me the Roland Gissing Trophy in 2009 by the Calgary Sketch Club for outstanding contribution to community. This April 2016, again I was awarded the Roland Gissing Trophy for coordinating Ageless Potential Art Show for seniors and elementary students at the Judith Umbach library. In 2013, I was a guest on the City TV Breakfast Show to talk about pumpkin carving. I have also shown how to carve pumpkins at the Telus Spark Centre in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Recently I was interviewed by the Fairchild Radio, FM 94.7 to share my art experience on the Happy Weekly program.
Art is within my soul. By participating, I gain valuable experience and confident that one cannot achieve in academic programs. Helping others to gain confidence, self esteem, and enjoyment in art is my goal.
Quick sketch for special events, caricature, superhero, and portrait. Art classes are available for seniors, adults, and children. Also original art works for sale.
