Feng Biddle didn’t have much exposure to art as a child growing up in China in the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution. It wasn’t until after she immigrated to the U.S. and stumbled upon an artist demonstrating how to use oil pastels that she realized her passion. Feng starts each piece by sketching on paper with charcoal, later transferring the outline to canvas like a stencil. When painting still lifes, she always outlines the vase first and lets the rest of the image develop organically around it. Feng works slowly and deliberately in her studio made of glass walls, reflecting on each piece until it guides her what to do next. When she’s not making art, Feng works as a data architect. “In a way, this is similar to what I do with my art, where I am creating structures for form and color. In another way, however, it is the opposite, as building data structures is almost entirely a logical, left brain activity, whereas my art work is an emotional, right brain effort. I guess you could say that these are the complementary yin and yang that make me whole.”
Thank you Nancy. I am glad you love the painting. I am participating St Charles Fine art show in May 27-28, Geneva Fine Art Show in July 22-23, you are welcome to stop by at the show or my home studio if you get a chance visit Geneva again.
I recently bought Blue Hydrangea and love it! Many thanks! I live in Colorado now, but grew up in Geneva. Greetings to a fellow Illinoisan.
Thank you Candice. I am glad you enjoy the painting.
I purchased Blue and Yellow Roses a few weeks ago and love it! Feng's art is a breath of fresh air - certainly it is in my 150 year old house where we now have some excitement in our dining room! Her colors and composition are so pleasing and different - so glad that she is selling her work through UGallery. I am thrilled to be a owner of this piece.
