Suet Fun Owyoung (born 1972)
Suet Fun Owyoung was born in 1972 in China. She has been creating artwork at Creativity Explored of San Francisco since 2005. Because Owyoung speaks only Cantonese, her artwork serves as a chief mode of communication with her English-speaking artistic community. The majority of Owyoung’s art is a combination of text and images. She deftly incorporates Chinese calligraphy into landscapes and figurative scenes, as well as abstract color fields. Over time, Owyoung’s artwork has become increasingly fluid, expressive, and larger in scale. The delicacy of her line always plays against the broad washes of color in the background of her paintings, for a serene balancing effect.
