Yat Chun
Flower Watercolorist

Art composites a major part of my life and is my greatest passion. I find sketching on streets intriguing as I could meet new people and befriend them through chatting and exchanging ideas. Amid all types of art form, watercolor is my favorite given its romantic and unique nature. I also enjoy using ink pen lines, hence this technique is widely adopted in my various drawings. Flower is my main drawing subject as it has the ability to demonstrate multiple emotions and notions through its tone and form. I am dedicated in sharing happiness through my drawings – It is my sincere hope that everyone could feel their inner peace from enjoying and observing my paintings.
