I am Ching Piau Khoo originate from Malaysia and I am a self-taught artist who has lived in the UK for over 20 years. My background and love of nature and my wish to express this through art has been at the forefront of my life. The intention is to relay life's beauty and joy in every painting.
The work is made with high quality professional grade watercolour paints and cotton canvas. Layers of watercolour wash are employed and detail is enhanced with pen and ink. I make originals as well as limited edition prints in a variety of sized to suit every customer. Commission are also regularly undertaken and welcome.
The delicate and beautiful marks my love of nature and sheer happiness with life. Generally, before the artist paints, there is an idea of what to display on the canvas, but this sometimes happens almost magically as the idea progresses through my thought process. I study subject matter carefully and choose ideas that are inspirational at that precise moment. At this point I become immersed in the artistic process.
Art for an artist is a reflection of their own emotions, happiness and love. This is clearly shown in my work. Since, I fell in love with art and life, I am the happiest person in the world. I love to make paintings with all my heart and soul. My soul is enveloped by the process of painting. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than creating a new piece of work. My artwork covers a wide range of topics - landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, and flowers. I do not feel inclined to specialise in any one category because almost any subject can contribute to my an interesting creativity. The end result express positive emotions such as joy, happiness and love.
