About Me

My name is Doris Cheung. I created this website to respond to the call to share my love and messages with you. I want to share my journey and encourage you on your own journey. I hope to inspire you through my blog and paintings.

First thing first- I am definitely not a natural born artist but I am passionate on painting. In third grade I would often tell my art teacher that I did not know how to do the drawing or painting she assigned. She would always help me start my projects. One day, I went up to her as usual and told her I did not know how to draw/paint what she asked, and she said, “It’s just a key that I want you to draw. You can do it. You just have to be creative and draw your design. It does not matter what it looks like.” I drew and colored my key that day and I felt so good about it. I started doing oil paintings in high school and loved it.

I used oil painting as a way to de-stress. It worked very well! Next I tried acrylics and have been obsessed with watercolor lately. Many believe that watercolor is the most difficult medium and that was why I loved it so much! I always believed that no one knows everything when they are born, but we can ALL learn it. You may be better at one thing than others, but it doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy doing something. With passion and effort, you will get there one day!

As you go through my site, you will see that I have come a long way from the timid little girl in art class afraid to try anything on my own. But if I can do it, you can do it too! Remember, your “key” does not have to be perfect, just be creative!
