Artist Bio

I was born in Saigon, Vietnam. In 1975 Saigon fell and in the resulting confusion, I was separated from my parents. I ended up in a refugee camp near Hong Kong for a year prior to immigrating to the United States as an orphan. After getting my art degree, I have since settled down to pursue my art career in Los Angeles, later Seattle, and finally Hawaii.

My work has been exhibited and collected in private and public art collections in the U.S., China, Mexico, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Eastern Europe. In 2016 one of my portrait paintings was exhibited at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.
