Meet the Artist
Over the years, traditional Chinese watercolor artist based in Luoyang, Yuehua Qiao, has not only painted with brush but also with her heart. She uses art as a way to express together with her home-bound son, Bo-Yan Qiao (nickname Chiang Chiang), and as a way to enrich his life. Chiang Chiang was born with Down Syndrome and is denied a lot of opportunities in China because of his condition. Yuehua has become an accomplished artist in China. She has participated in many regional, provincial, and national level peony painting competitions in China. She has won recognition and many awards from notable art institutions and organizations. Her works have been published in several high-profile books and are collected in many museums and in many private households in both China and U.S.A.
