I am an artist of Lao Canadian heritage. I was born in Vientiane, Laos and was educated at the Lycee de Vientiane. I was the first Fulbright Scholar from Laos and studied at St. Lawrence University in New York State. Later I completed a post-graduate teaching certificate from the University of Lethbridge and have taught English and French to new immigrants.
Even though I have had many creative and international opportunities open to me, I knew deep inside that art and painting were my passions. It is a good thing I let my passions prevail, as the emotion, intensity and serenity of my work have blessed everyone who has experienced and attained one of the wonderful creations.
