Reverence for nature; Serenity; Peacefulness
This Chinese philosophy inspires the brush painting of Charlotte Fung Miller of Mukwonago, Wisconsin, a native of San Francisco's Chinatown.
Charlotte studied 9 years of formal Chinese calligraphy and 7 years of Chinese brush painting under Master Lui-Sang Wong of San Francisco.
With an M.S. degree in nutritional science and a B.A. in bacteriology at the University of California at Berkeley, Charlotte has chosen her true calling. Her painting is done in watercolor on rice paper. No shadowing is used and depth is achieved only through gradation of color. However, she adds her own individual style through the use of more color and the introduction of Midwestern themes.
She especially delights in the colors of Wisconsin's changing seasons.
Mrs. Miller has received numerous awards for her work. She has also taught courses in Chinese art and cooking, her philosophy being, "I will be able to share my heritage with others."
Special commissions meeting individual decorating ideas are most welcome.
All original works are in classic and contemporary Chinese brush painting techniques, on handmade rice papers. Originals are sold matted and framed. The selections featured in the gallery are only some of the images available. Mrs. Miller has a huge catalog of work. Contact her for more information.
