Bird & Flower 花鸟

According to Chinese tradition, bird-and-flower painting covers flowers, plants, birds, fish, insects, and pets. Typically, the painting is not merely a description of the subject, but rather shows character or ideal. Jennifer has created various styles of bird-and-flower paintings - often inspired by masters' graceful brushstrokes, poems, and nature.

Mountain & Water 山水

In Chinese Brush Painting, landscape painting literally means "mountain and water". Usually, the painting is not a precise depiction of a scenery, but an expression of an imaginary world. Often times, it describes an escape from the unpleasant real life or a dreamland.
