Alberta Old Buildings” is her newest project during Alberta AIR, it received 10 media interviews from Alberta to Vancouver. Her previous “YEG Old Houses” project during her 1st artist-in-residence at McLuhan House artist studio in Highlands which was operated by Art Habitat Edmonton, was awarded a 2022 art grant from Canada Council For The Art.

She won twice years of Open Art Competition in Allied Art Council Spruce Grove and painted for over a decade.

Since Aeris moved to Edmonton, Alberta started a new life with her husband, the change in living environment, landscapes, and nature inspired her in every aspect to be a true artist. It created unique opportunities and freedom to stimulate her creativity by using the visual medium to express her vision and observation.

Aeris’s artworks were collected in North America and Asia.

Artist Statement

As a self-taught visual artist who moved to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from Hong Kong in 2007. I was born and raised in both Eastern and Western cultures. Hong Kong was a modern international city mixing Eastern and Western cultures, from Traditional Chinese Temples to Victorian Architecture. My cultural background influences my perspective on life as well as my Art.

My visual art is a journey of self-exploration. They are representing the integration between my inner peacefulness and passion. My paintings and drawings were taken from the essence of the landscapes, and surrounding objects. I redefined them and gave them a new identity while keeping the soul of the land and surrounding objects.

All my visual arts have their own character with no duplication, a medium can be acrylic, watercolor, or ink pen. You can find my acrylic paintings presented in vivid, striking color palettes emphasizing the passion of life. Also, you can find my watercolor paintings presented in a subtle, soft color palette emphasizing the ethereal and delicate atmosphere.

Bible Scripture:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Proverb: 3:5-6
