Hi, Iím Joey Chan, a self-taught artist working with watercolor and photography to display everything sprightly and vigorous in our world. I aspire to brighten and invigorate people through my enthusiasm in art.
I had been trained to be an engineer, which is a fairly common ideal pursuit in my birthplace, Hong Kong. Art had never been linked me in my early part of life. Until, I moved to United State, I reassessed the values and goals I had for my last thirty two years. I signed up for some art, design and architecture classes at San Francisco and Berkeley. I was immediately inspired by my first drawing teacher and fascinated into the world of art. Therefore, I abandoned my calculator and helmet in favor of a palette of paints and brushes.
When I became a stay home mother, I made my goal to raise a family and art life together. I juggle between parenting and art creation full-time at home, because I desire to show every beautiful thing I saw to my child and everyone through my brushes and camera with praise and gratitude.
