Mona comes from southern China and lives in California. Her Chinese name is 周忆清. She was loaded with talent.

At age 5, she started her first Chinese painting and calligraphy lessons. At university, she majored in oil painting and graphic design. Her oil paintings combine Realism and Expressionism, a combination rarely found in the works of such a young artist. Whether she paints a portrait, a still-life, or scenery, she makes natural use of her skills, reflecting her understanding of both the European and Chinese cultures and her profound love of nature. This combination creates appealing works in terms of their visual harmonies and picturesque qualities. Some people believe this is due to her solid, all-around educational background and her keen love for her fellow humans.

Artist Statement:I learned traditional Chinese watercolor when I was age 5. At 11 years old, I began learning Western painting basics: Sketching and Gouache. From my academic experience at two universities, I have obtained a solid foundation in drawing and am skilled in realism and classicism. I began to combine the styles of Western and Oriental by the highest aesthetic integration points. Regardless of my Oil paintings, Gouache, Watercolor, and Chinese paintings, they all come deeply from my concept of philosophy. In my opinion, painting is not a competition in high technology, but rather the artists’ discernment of life to the inherent thing in the analysis of realism, neoclassicism, and impressionism. Therefore, painting is not only the best with superb painting skills, but more importantly, it has the means to decrypt the philosophy of life with adept painting technologies; this is my point to reach my target of painting in the future.

Her paintings, her documentary writing on her travel experience, and her literary essays give one the feeling of a prominent artist. To collect her works at this present stage would be a wise decision, and probably a promising investment. These works of art could also be worth collecting just for one's own appreciation and enjoyment. Sooner or later this gifted young lady can be expected to become famous in one or other of the fields in which she works.
