About Huan

      I enjoyed drawing, calligraphy and Chinese ink painting when I was young, but never dreamed of becoming a painter. I went through a long path of discovery after I immigrated to Canada with my parents, studied and worked as an engineer. I received my formal training from McGill University with Bachelor and Master's degrees in Chemical Engineering. My research was in the environmental engineering field. In 2003 I started painting lessons which began as a way of expressing myself and ended as a true passion. In 2010 I switched to working full time as a painter and art instructor, and couldn't be more content since!

 

      My formal training has deepened my concerns for the environment. A nature lover, and also fond of figure painting, I often portray the two subjects together, as a harmonious yet transitory scene. I like to convey the intimate bond humans share with the surrounding world. I enjoy painting en plein air with friends in the summer. My favourite place is the riverbank of the Credit River near where I live.
