'The Longer I Serve Him, the Sweeter It Grows...'
I was born in a Christian family with an artistic backgoround; my father and brother are musicians that both art and music is the centre of my life. My mother is a Professor in Education. It has not been easy to have three artists living under the same roof because each one is occupied with one's own world of creativity. It leaves my mother by herself to "clean up" after us to make sure the smooth running of our daily life.
Ever since I was four, my parents would take my brother and I to sing gospel songs in different churches on a regular basis. I chose to become a christian and was baptised when I was sixteen. God's love has always been my strength and comfort and without Him I wouldn't have gone this far.
Recently we lost our second baby boy Joshua (name according to Joshua 24:15 in the Holy Bible) due to SIDS.. God gave us the very memorable and precious 27 days family time together with him, we treasure every moments of it.
A song called "Mourn the Death of a Dream" [(Acts 12:17b) -- written by/vocal: Michael Card] deeply touched / comforted us during this most difficult time or our lives:
"Cool morning shadows sadly shift across the floor, each time we say goodbye it's harder than before; even after all the pain of parting still we find, that we must mourn the death of the dreams we leave behind. As I turn my back on all that means the most to me, the sounds and smells, the light that dances on the sea, the greatest gamble is to act on the belief, that only the slave who leaves it all is truly free. The sacrifice that we both lay before His feet, a thousand moments that belonged to us, that now will never be. By faith we hold a better dream inside our hearts, a time when our family will never have to be apart. Till then we struggle with just what it really means, and we will mourn the death of our beautiful dreams. Mourn the death of our beautiful dreams."
God's love has never fail us even though our angel boy Joshua is no longer with us on earth, but we are truly looking forward to embracing him again in Heaven one day... We don't know what tomorrow holds and what our future is, we only know: "the Longer We Serve Him, the Sweeter It Grows".
My family has never stop serving God through art, music and testimonies, together with my son Joseph (name according to Genesis 48:15 in the Holy Bible) we will continue this commitment and so will our future generations.
'Gift from God - be His Instrument'
I have a strong interest in drawing when I was little and throughout the years I acquired skills in textiles and computer design. During the past few years, I have focused on developing my philosophy of life and transmitting it to my works. I know that in pursuing great creativity I need personal effort in acquiring knowledge developing skills, and also an environment where I can develop my proficiency in a professional art culture.
Making Textiles works is quite different from what I did before. With this different approach, I constantly challenge myself to do drawings/paintings as well as textile-forms. In my portraiture pieces I am always aiming to express the pain or joy, the sadness or solitude of being human.
In "Courage and Cowardice" series, I hope to instill in the minds of the audience what it means to be brave, its nobility, its solidness, its power for good; and the solly of cowardice, its uselessness, its temporary nature, its hopelessness. These qualities are to be related not only in the content of my images but also in how they are made.
"Portrait God's Love"
My favourite subject matter is people with 'Love' as the theme to testify the love of God and from which I find it very enriching. I want my works to be expressions of my own aspirations and hope, of my own desires to be courageous in life, to be determined to do what is right, to uphold my principles and to faithfully and bravely serve the will of God! I would like to delicate all my work to God as a testimony to the wonder of His love and all that He has done for us!
