Journey of Life


Life is a journey of happiness, sorrow, courage, and strength.  Life has its own beginning and end but will be the precious memories for us to carry on.  Journey of life is always looking forward, even though we know that, at one point or another, we will realize that some people can only live in our heart, but cannot be by our side till the end…  Journey of life is a journey of finding ourselves, finding our power, and living for ourselves not for everyone else…


It is like a colorful painting and we are the only artist for our journey.


In this exhibition, I want to be the artist for my own journey, the journey with many beautiful memories of my loved ones, special Vanessa Pham, my lovely niece who was gone forever.  Each of my painting of her is the happy memory I will carry in my heart until the end.
