Amy Chan – A Chinese porcelain artist who was born and is living in Hong Kong with her husband and son. After resigned from her post as an I/E merchandiser that she had worked for over ten years, she started to look for her interest that she didn’t have time to do in the past. Amy loves all kinds of painting. She then spent a few years learning oil and water color painting with an Australian teacher – Annlise Howes. At the same time, she also took lessons of Chinese brush painting with a Chinese teacher – Grace Chan.

 

Amy Chan - 是一位土生土長的瓷畫藝術家, 與丈夫及兒子住在香港。自從辭去工作十多年的出入口買手工作後, Amy全心全意投入她的興趣 - 繪畫!在跟隨澳洲老師 Annlise Howes 學習油畫及水彩畫的同時, 亦跟隨中國老師Grace Chan學習國畫。

 

About 18 years ago, she was being introduced to the wonderful art of Porcelain Painting and then she fell in love with it at once. She started taking lesson in Hong Kong with her teacher Rosemary Oh, who is her neighbor who lived a few doors away.

 

大約十八年前,她偶然發現了瓷畫,便深深愛上了這門藝術。原來老師Rosemary Oh 就住在咫尺! 所以一學便是幾個年頭 !

 

In the mid 1999, prior to leaving Hong Kong for an assignment in Australia, Rosemary persuaded Amy to continue her teaching of porcelain painting in Hong Kong.

 

在1999年中, 老師要離開香港回澳洲。她說服Amy 延續她在香港的瓷畫教學。

 

Despite being slightly anxious, Amy commenced teaching in March 2000 with classes held at home. In an effort to continue to increase the awareness of this art form, Amy participated in different exhibitions and exposed herself in different media. Her developing reputation and her love in art resulted in an increasing of number of students wishing to join her classes.

 

雖然有些戰戰兢兢, 但Amy終於在2000年三月在家開始教授瓷畫。為了引起更多人對瓷畫藝術的關注, Amy參加了多項不同的展覽及接受各方傳媒的訪問, 因為感受到Amy對瓷畫的投入及熱誠, 很快就有更多人對瓷畫產生興趣, 同時跟隨Amy學習瓷畫的人也越來越多。

 

In order to keep up and to learn more painting techniques, Amy read a lot of books and kept on practice daily. To satisfy her learning needs, Amy also attended the following seminars given by the world known international artists who were invited to Hong Kong or she went aboard to attend the seminars organized by different overseas porcelain painting associations.

 

為了更進一步了解瓷畫及學習更多的繪畫技巧, Amy翻閱不少有關書藉, 每天勤於練習。為了滿足她的學習訢求和把繪畫技巧推向更高層次, Amy不時邀請世界知名的瓷畫導師來港教授和交流心得, 亦會到世界各地向不同的瓷畫家學習取經。
