Lily Liu Zhang

Lily Liu was born in China. She worked at the China Archaeology Institute for ten years and studied drawing at the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. When she and her husband moved to the United States, she studied watercolor at the New Orleans Fine Art Academy. Once in Dallas, Lily worked for a local jewelry company before devoting herself full time to painting. She has studied oil painting with her husband, Xiang Zhang, and is currently moving away from the classical style towards Post Impressionism. Her passion is to apply the intense color contrast and bold brush stroke to convey the colorful subjects as she interprets them. Her artistic philosophy is that art must be stronger than what we see in life.
