  1. How long have you been at WWAS? I began classes at WWAS in first term of 2012. I have been a student at WWAS most years since then.

  2. Where do you travel from each week? I live in Woollahra, walking distance to WWAS.

  3. What classes do you do at WWAS? On Monday afternoon, I learn watercolour with Amanda Doctor. On Thursday morning, I learn portrait painting with Joshua McPherson.

  4. What do you do when you are not creating? I am the cook in our household.

  5. Who are your tutors and what do you like about them? In the past, I had many classes with Stavros Papantoniou, Phillipa Hagon and Kevin McKay. Now, my teachers are Josh McPherson and Amanda Doctor. What I like about all of them is that they focus on teaching us skills, and that they are friendly and very supportive of students.

  6. Why do you keep coming back to WWAS? Several factors draw me back. I feel a strong connection with my classmates. I am always learning something new. WWAS is a home for me as a student.

  7. What are you currently working on? I am working on some portraits, some on commission and some for family and friends. I have some landscapes in progress and I am improving my watercolour skills.

  8. What inspires or motivates your art practice? What inspires me is what my new life in Australia offers me. When I came here in October 2011 to live, I had my partner. Four months later, I began at WWAS. There was no chance in Hong Kong to do what I am doing here, to learn what I am learning, to develop my skills. Since 2016, I have been an Australian citizen. My new life has made all this possible.
  1. Who are your favourite artists? I love the 19th century impressionists. When my partner and I went to Paris in 2014, we visited the Orangerie. It is extraordinary.}

  2. What would you say to someone thinking about taking art classes at WWAS? I would say four things: everyone can create, you need skills; you will learn them at WWAS; art never dies.
