Artist's Statement:

"To me the joy is in painting a picture. I'm not concerned with what happens afterwards. It's like when you travel - it's the journey that will interest you not the destination." “I would like someone who looks at my paintings to have the same feeling I had when I painted them.” "I want to give them something beautiful, something worthwhile - like going to a scenic spot and gaining pleasure from what you see around you."

- Kwong Yeu Ting
