My name is Sandy Chen, and I love painting. I started out making images with pencils, color pencils, and charcoal. These satisfied me for a time, but it wasn’t until I discovered oil paints that I felt my creative juices really start flowing. With oil paints, I can put layer upon layer of color. When I paint, all my thoughts and feelings at the time go into the making of the picture—it evolves as I paint it. Each of my paintings, therefore, reflects a different stage of my life.
I love sharing my paintings with the people in my life. Through my works, I can make connections with people that I may not have discovered otherwise.
I hope that when people look at my paintings they will feel touched by them in some way.
I want people to know that painting is not as difficult as it may appear. Should you feel inspired, after looking at my works, to want to pick up a brush, I encourage you to do so. You won’t regret it.
