20 years ago I became very interested in Chinese Art and the philosophy and reverence to Gods creation that is embedded in the Asian arts. Five years of study combined with Professor Lo and Josephine Tsai in the Art of Chinese Brush Painting, Loretta studied with the late Professor Joseph Lo a renown educator and artist and founder of the Chinese Brush Painters Society in the United Kingdom. I became a student of Josephine Tsai after Professor Lo passed away.
