Cocoa has been an independent artist for nine years in China and has created over 300 pieces of original works ( Majority are Oil and acrylics ). She prefers abstract way because she realized that they can be more accurate to express the spiritual world.
Cocoa has an extensive background in internet, advertising, spirituality, theology, and art. She has been working as project manager etc. in Internet companies for ten years. One day, she realized that corporate world was far away from her dreamy world. Then, she studied abroad in Loyola University, Chicago, The teaching and experience over there transformed her. Also, she figured out that her utmost dream was to be an artist so that to spread God’s love and beauty to the world. Therefore, she started to learn painting in 2011. The next year, she found out three of her favorite artists-masters were Van Gogh, O'Keeffe and Mark Rothko. One day, she got an "Ah-ha" moment when she was meditating before one of Rothko's works, it was like a magic that drawing her into it with great spiritual energy. She resonated with it strongly. That experience served as the catalyst that triggered her creativity. Since then, she started to create abstract works.
Her work is about transforming the seen creatures and unseen world to abstract paintings. Each piece begins with meditation, by applying practices and imagination, step by step, she created a new universe on canvas. The more she experiences and lives, the more she realizes that she is not as powerful as sunshine, but she still wants to light the darkness with her small lights as best as she can like the glowworms. She just want to pass on the beauty and energy from the universe to the world.
