Artist Statement: Suemae Lin Willhite delivers delicate fine lines and dynamic brush strokes with ease, grace and clarity. Chinese calligraphy & brush painting are ancient and revered fine arts.  Chinese calligraphy depicts beautiful images in dynamic dancing movements with the rhythm in music.  The ink is singing as the brush is dancing. 

Suemae comes from a family of artists and scholars of Taiwan. She draws her ideas from nature and spiritual inspirations.  She paints when she is inspired by a vision in her mind’s eye from a wide range of subjects and compositions with a unique style of Chinese impressionism, abstract, and her own Asian Fusion.  Painting is like a form of meditation her soul and she comes way with so much joy from the process.  At an early age, Suemae learned from her grandfather and renowned masters from Taiwan. She strives to achieve spirit, vitality, and a timeless quality in her paintings. Painting is like a form of meditation for her soul and she comes away with so much joy from the process. Suemae teaches Chinese Brush Painting at The Santa Barbara City College since 2008.  Please visit WWW.SUEMAEART.COM. Email:
