my curriculum vitae

Curriculum Vitae

Irene experiment and explore every possible way to work in different art forms, expressing my personal creativity and vision which knows no boundaries and no limitations as I am inspired by God.  The ideas and feelings shown in my art are fruits of ongoing process of faith, hope and love on canvas.

During my teen years in 1972, I learned Chinese brush painting from Master Fan Sze Deng in Hong Kong. Upon immigrating to Canada in 1995, I started exploring western painting techniques. I had joined the Willowdale Group of Artists in 2008, the Dynasty Watercolor Group in 2010, and Bayview Watercolor Society in 2011.  These groups have given me a chance to meet and learn from the other artists in Toronto.  Among them I admired D. D. Gadjanski, Bianka Guna, Donnah Cameron, Richard Mongiat and Henry Ho. They taught me how to play with water fluid acrylics, oil, watercolors, collage, mixed media and chinese ink.  These media allow me to express my creativity and personal interpretation.  It is such a joy to create these works about living the present moment!

All proceeds go toward the Focolare Movement’s Haiti school projects.  If you are interested, you can learn more about the Focolare Movement here.
