My friend Christine Cheung, an award-winning painter, has launched her website christinecheung.ca where you can check out her beautiful portfolio of paintings and artist statement. Quoting Christine’s bio,
She has been artist-in-residence at Red Gate Studios (Beijing), Compeung (Thailand), Jogja National Museum (Indonesia), Struts Gallery (New Brunswick), AIR KREMS (Lower Austria) and Norway (Agder Kunstnersenter). In 2008, she was awarded a production grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and Canada Council of the Arts. She recently won the Alberta Lieutenant Governor General’s Emerging Artist Award. She is now living and working in Berlin.
P.S. By the way, I should mention Christine’s lovely paintings featured in City of Calgary’s street banners in Chinatown and the centre street bridge.
