I create art because...

I love Arts, Art is my therapy, it bring me a joy and happiness.

I am different to most artists because...

I am a refegee Vietnamese Australian artist, who is passionated about traditionnal and contemporary Arts. I hope to be able to share my experience as an artist having inherited a rich Vietnamese cultural background crossebred with Autralian traditional and mutticultural arts on a national level. This transition has provided me with a unique insight into the Autralian Arts movement.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

The blurring of both cultural sides in my art has become the synthesis for my works.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

Arts is something we love, we hope, and expressioned of our thought. Art is a silent language but it is so powerful, it can brings to us a joy, a happiness and drives our emotion..

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

Art is a massed media, we can not live without Arts, which is a way we experienced the world and sharing our own personal intered.
