Jing Liu

Jing Liu was born and bred in Beijing China and is now living with her family in New Zealand. Ever since she was a child, she loved drawing and painting; a state of mind that allows her to creatively express herself and communicate with the world. Being a self-taught artist, she likes sketching and the claborate style of the traditional Chinese watercolour painting the most, and enjoys using lines, shapes, colours, light and shadow to create an illusion of feelings and emotions for audiences. She also enjoys experimenting with different drawing ideas, such as combining sketching and Chinese watercolour on rice paper to create an interesting visual look. Her artworks can also be viewed on Instagram (
