Andrea moved back to Hong Kong after completing her Bachelor's degree in the United States. She has been drawing for as long as she can remember. Some of her first art-related memories are painting jungle scenes and self-portraits in an after-school painting class. It was this environment that solidified her love of art and creativity. Today, she enjoys the same aspects of art as she did back then, and has the opportunity to pay it forward with Pitter Painter.
Andrea hopes to recreate that nourishing environment that hooked her many years ago, where creativity is emboldened and expression guided. She is both excited and motivated to be working with the unclouded imagination of children.
Chinese painting was the gateway to Emily's discovery of painting. After earning her Diploma in Chinese Painting from HKU Space, she discovered western-style painting and included watercolor, pastel, oil and collage into her artwork. Emily loves to travel and explore museums to learn about other artists. Seeing the work of other artists expands her world, enriches her artwork and gives her more to share with the little ones she teaches.
