Sun began teaching herself how to paint through many trials, repetition, experimentation and learning from her favorite Master Artists, Quang Ho, Laura Robb and Phil Starke. She expresses her art in landscape, seascape, figure and still life in her home studio or Plein air. She enjoys depicting a strong sense of colorful light, shadows and loves finding hard and soft lines to create depth.
"I have found much joy and great passion for my art and my goal is to have a painting better than the one before. My painting style is developing and changing everyday. I try to paint the essence of what I’m seeing, what I am feeling and capture the moment of life in each piece. In a short time as an artist I have enjoyed living in each moment and the challenges of each piece I create."
