Meeting Hung Liu

This month I had the absolute privilege of interviewing contemporary painter, Hung Liu, who has been an important influence in my work.  The year I entered art school I cut out two small copies of her paintings and taped them to my easel and they stayed there for many years.  Born in China and immigrating to this country in 1984, she has a fascinating life story.  Her powerful work can be found most major museums.  We spent several hours talking and then I was able to meet her and spend some time with her in Los Angeles.  I am so grateful for the time spent with her.  She is an amazing artist and person and always inspiring.  The article is here.
