About Info

Artist Name
Lucia Woo
Artist Statement

As the youngest child of an immigrant family from mainland China to Hong Kong, my only childhood entertainment was Japanese Manga. I learned how to draw by reading Manga, and I dreamed about becoming a Manga artist one day. However, my passion for art was not encouraged. After years of working as a graphic designer in Hong Kong, I went to Canada to pursue art in 1997.  I moved to the USA in 2009 and started teaching at the Talented Art Program in Bossier City in 2016.

Every time I move to a new country, I faced a new challenge of adapting to her local culture, ways of communication, food, and climate. These challenges often left me feeling out-of-place. Art came through as a “fire exit” for me. Since I was young, art helped me escape alienation and became my advocator. That’s why my art is infused with fantasy, myth, and a sense of escapism.
