Life is full of love and affection throughout the work of Chinese
watercolor artist Irene Tsai. With her Chinese background, Irene captures
Chinese culture through a variety of symbolic subjects such as lotus, cranes,
pine, and bamboo to echo the purity, longevity, endurance, and flexibility of
nature. Working with ink and watercolors on rice paper, Irene uses traditional
techniques to express peace and a calm atmosphere. She cordially invites all of
you to enter her poetic world.
Irene studied calligraphy with her father
since she was eight. She first studied traditional Chinese paintings with James
Liu and, later on, with Henry Wo. Irene is a resident artist at Workhouse Art
Center at Lorton, VA.
