Interests and Personality

BiographyHi all. My name is Bev Amanlee Choo-Foo. I enjoy doing nude charcoal drawings and abstract paintings. My style could be deemed to be inspired by colour field painters like Rothko as well as Zen or Taoist art. I often do my pieces to music. The piece's mood has great influence on the rhythm of the painting. I have a degree im East Asian Studies and Art History as well as a certificate in graphic design and TESL (teaching). I have sold one painting and have some hanging in a cafe in Old Montreal. Pls see http://www.flickr.com/photos/33356552@N00/
