Art is everywhere. Look beyond yourself and you see it in the people , places and things around you.
One artist I know is Canal Cheong-Jagerroos, a professional painter who has done very well for herself. Married to a Finnish husband, she originated from Macau. Her father taught her the fundamental techniques of traditional Chinese painting; this can be seen in many of her works past and present.
I first met Canal in 1996 whilst I was living in Strasbourg, France. I was a student back then, those memories of my friendship with her were unforgettable...later on after I left France, we sorted of drifted apart. I am sad about this, but people in life move on....I am honoured to have met her and formed a friendship with her - albeit a short one. Some of her current paintings have fetched several thousand pounds per piece!
