Meet the Author

Lucy Wang was born in Taiwan and graduated from the National Taiwan College of Arts in Taipei, Taiwan, where she studied with several master artists. In 1993, an invitation from the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, Georgia, brought Lucy to the United States, and she continues to exhibit in both Taiwan and the United States. She has taught Chinese brush painting for more than 20 years and is a popular demonstrator for art groups and a frequent juror for exhibitions. Lucy’s work has been published on magazine covers, and her television program “The Magic of Chinese Brush Painting” is broadcast on several San Diego cable television stations. Her paintings were selected for use by Blue Mountain Note Cards, published by the Audubon Society and UNICEF, and made into cross-stitch patterns by Candamar Designs.
