About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I love nature and art. With a mild personality, I am easy to get along with; with patience and perseverance, I am good at painting and childcare. Since my childhood, visual art has always been my most interested topic. However, it was not possible for me to pursue this path since studying arts required great monetary expenses. Nevertheless, I still try to find ways to approach arts by participating in many arts related activities and saving money to obtain painting materials. For example, I used to pay frequent visits to the arts classes. Even more, I also volunteered frequently at the local art museum, so in this way I could get more exposure to the fine atmosphere of arts. Yet there was limits to this kind of learning as I still could not obtain proper training in terms of professional preparation. Although plant pathology graduate from National Chung Hsing University in 2004, I found my major interest still lied in the field of visual arts. Then during my study in graduate school, arts brought a greater impact upon my life as I learned its application in mental therapy from the Mental Health Foundation. With this event and previous experiences with arts, my desire to pursue it became even stronger. As a result, I decided to drop out of graduate school of National Taiwan University and went along with my primary interest. Afterwards, I was informed by my friends about web sites on the internet and was very fortunate to take part in many arts activities, including the internship of Award Exhibition at the Taishin Art. In addition, i think art and nature account for human's fundamental necessity.
