Happiness Within, 2018

Happiness Within, 2018

Two solo exhibitions, one Artist in Residence, and my first reality TV competition... 2018 felt pleasantly still and intimate.

Now in my 7th year as a full-time independent artist, I've learned to thoroughly prepare myself for tasks ahead.

In 2018, such opportunities included a brand-cohesive exhibition at Google HQ,

(Martin Hsu 'A Good Life' Google Exhibition, Googleplex, CA)

a deeply personal solo feature Ningyo at Modern Eden Gallery,

a month-long artist appearance at Disney's WonderGround Gallery,

and an hour-long live competition to create beautiful art on TV.

Now more than ever, I see wonder in nature...

find kinship with animals,

and feel at peace with being a naturalist and traditionalist

making art in the contemporary world.

So as always, thank you for joining me on this creative and spiritual exploration.

Happy 2018, Hello 2019.

With light,
