Background

Qing is a photographer, artist, and designer. Her portfolio covers a wide range of subjects, and her favorite themes are floral/botanical, fields, trees and travel. She not only captures what she sees, but also interprets her subjects in an artistic way, expressing what she feels. She observes organic patterns and geometric shapes found in nature and everyday life, and what interest her most are forms, textures, light and shadow. Other than photography, her favorite media are brush and ink, pen and ink, and watercolor.

Statement

As a photographer, artist, and designer, I firmly believe that everything has its own beauty – from a gracefully standing peony in the garden, to a little chunky potato in the kitchen. I approach my art with inspirations from nature, travel, little things in daily life, books, memories, emotions and stories. What interest me most are forms, light and shadow. What I value most is the resonance evoked from a subject.
Why art? Sometimes, I have wondered if my art pieces are from my own heart at that very moment, why would another person be interested in. Then, when I look at an art work from another artist, I either grin, or feel that tension and pain, and I know that two hearts have just met each other, even if briefly. Art is beyond culture and art is honest. When I put my genuine feelings and thoughts into my art works, others will feel it.
