Chinese Brush Paintings: The Creative Works of Sheila Hsu

Chinese Brush Painting

A selection of Sheila Hsu's paintings is displayed here. Her work in Chinese brush painting is beautiful and serene in the traditional style, yet there are modern and abstract qualities to it. Sheila paints in two different styles, Fine Line and Free Brush Stroke.

Sheila began her interest in art in early life. Growing up in mainland China, she learned from her father who taught her Chinese history, poetry, and antique collecting. Her aunts were professors of Chinese literature and once ran a private art school. Sheila came to the U.S. in 1960. She pursued a profession in health care and nursing, and ultimately received a Master of Science Degree. She taught college courses, worked in administration, and early retired in 1997.

Sheila loves to do florals - especially chrysanthemums and peonies. She also does landscapes. She likes to use clean lines, clear colors, and some degree of abstraction in her painting. She attempts to maintain some traditional techniques, but opens her creation to a modern, contemporary mood. Here, you will find paintings created by Sheila in both styles mentioned above. Her house in Southern California is like an art gallery. She has a variety of paintings for sale.
