Alfred Ng Winter 2007

On the Net

"When I was three years old and growing up in Hong Kong, one day I came across my teenage neighbour practicing Chinese brush painting. From that moment, I felt inspired me to paint. Being from a working class family, without any encouragement from my parents, I started to learn to paint on my own. In 1973 our family moved to Canada and then I was able to receive the formal art training I was looking for. After graduation, I realized that art school hadn't prepared me for how difficult it was going to be to become an artist. It took me many years to learn to balance home and work life, discipline my time, and follow what inspired that day in Hong Kong when I was three." Visit Alfred Ng's website for an impressive array of watercolor paintings with subjects including florals, landscapes, images of China, architecture, people, and his newer works from his recent exhibitions in Toronto, Canada.
