Hi, I’m Perry Chow, an artist from Hong Kong and now residing in Canada, whose joy comes from capturing life’s moments and emotions, as a form of a personal diary.

For more than a decade, I have flourished through the experience of plein air painting, where I use the medium of watercolour to capture the landscape, still life, and animals.

My work is influenced by my background in design, and I am able to transmit my feelings through my objects, thereby, enriching my pieces, and allowing my viewers to feel, subjectively, how I feel. In this way, they can come to a better understanding of the unique meaning of everyday experience.

I sell my work both at art shows and online. One of my works “The Weed” has been selected in Splash 16. In addition, I published a book in 2011 to share my plein air experience, entitled “Sketching | Impression of Life”. Last year, I was one of the contributors of “Urban Sketching Disappearing Landmarks in Toronto”, a book published by Toronto Urban Sketchers, whose aim is to highlight the artistic value of disappearing Toronto architecture. I was also invited to be a local correspondent for the Toronto Urban Sketchers Blog.

Finally, I thoroughly enjoy being an art instructor, where I explore the unlimited possibility that art provides, as I share my artistic journey with my students.
