About the teacher

Having been exposed to Chinese brush calligraphy since she was young, Michelle is greatly fascinated by this historical art with its variations through different scripts. Chinese calligraphy is an extremely therapeutic art requiring patience and focus. The art of calligraphy allowed her to seek deeper understanding in the vast Chinese culture and history, as well as poetic Chinese readings. She practices regular and semi-cursive scripts in search of greater beauty of this calligraphy, as well as the balance between both of these traditional scripts. Michelle is a regular at local Chinese calligraphy competitions where using black ink is vital. Recent years of playing with colours allowed her to explore the combination of vibrancy in the calligraphy for a different modern twist in her work. The journey with Chinese calligraphy for years has been inspiring, and Michelle hopes to bring this traditional art form to further depths and exposure. Besides calligraphy, Michelle also enjoys sketching and blogging when she takes a break from doing architecture, and also exploring the art in her surroundings.
