My name is Qiaofeng Wang ( Rose) and twelve years ago I was in China. Now I live in Shrewsbury, MA.
I have loved art since I was a young girl, but I never had the chance to go to any art universities because my parents didn't allow me to go to this University, even when I got a full scholarship for it. I learned from a teacher at home about 40 years ago. I practiced for about 7-8 years. After high school, I went to nursing and medical school.
After 3 years of working as an MD, I went to Vienna, Austria and I worked for 7 years as a nurse. I started painting with silk and oil during my free time.
Since I came to the USA, I had a very hard time living my life, with no opportunities to continue my hobby. I tried to go back to school for nursing and I didn't get transcript from my country. I have tried and succeeded passing the GED test, to try to go to nursing school again.
Recently, I found an opportunity that would allow me to continue my favorite hobby. I am lucky to be a member of Art Daily. It makes me more determined to start my drawing and painting. I am happy and sad because I must work 60-80 hours per week to support my family (my husband (a Chinese doctor) that lost his job and 4 young kids). I really wish that I could draw and paint every day.
I am very very happy and honored to show you my art work. I like all different kinds of art, including wall art, silk, wood, glass, porcelain, water color, sewing, and making jewelry, but I am mainly working with oil paintings and pencil drawings. My artwork has a lot of landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, still life, and figures as well portraits. My artwork is supposed to be a natural version of what I see, with a couple of signature twists, like more vibrant colors. You can find my work here, 'Artist Daily,' 'The Complete Artist,' and 'The Shrewsbury Art Guild.' My husband and I now have a company known as Yuquan Natural Herbs Center, Inc. and a facebook page with more info (https://www.facebook.com/natrualherbs.artdesign).
Through this website, I am able to learn a variety of art skills and have a stronger passion to continue.
