Eternal - Dragon

August 16th, 2017

Part of a series where I seek to capture the essence of the dragons from the Chinese myths and folktales I grew up with that have always been an inspiration to me. They were lords of the sea, kind and wise but also proud and strong.

The Warmth in Our Hearts - A family moment

April 27th, 2017

I drew this some time ago as a gift to my cousin when her daughter turned one. Children are the suns in their parents hearts towards which they turn, hence the sunflowers. ^_^

Metamorphosis by Alice - Butterfly Girl

I really love butterflies as a symbol. With the way they go from something plain to something beautiful (that can fly!), they really are the perfect symbol of positive change. ^_^

Memories of Yesterday by Alice - Mountain Landscape

March 1st, 2017

This was inspired by a photograph my dad took on a family trip to the Rockies. He’s always been very proud of that photo, and I find it wonderful how delighted he is whenever he talks about it. That really was a wonderful family trip.

Pale Darkness - Abstract

February 23rd, 2017

Pale Darkness - Abstract

Another brief venture into abstract art. :)
I was thinking about a quote from A Wizard of Earthsea that I've liked since I first read it years ago.

"Only in silence, the word. Only in dark, the light. Only in dying, life."
Forgive me if I got the punctuation wrong.

Phantom Peonies

February 9th, 2017

I fell in love with peonies after I drew some for my grandmother (they’re her favorite flowers). Looking at them, I can totally understand why they came to be thought of as flowers of fortune.
