Very honoured to be involved and helped designing promotion materials and program booklet for "A Slavic Celebration". Presented by Russian Sound Music Academy with the support of Russian Consulate General, the night was an amazing choice of music programs, artists, visual artworks and poems. Different forms of art mediums were integrating with each other. They had powerfully awaken the creative force. Sharing some of the highlights from below !

 After taking a month break, back from Vietnam, Singapore and Myanmar, I was very grateful that the first thing to begin with was a meaningful fundraising art jam. It was amazing to help each of these amazing artists and to be with them in this 4-hour workshop.

 I enjoy seeing them with their own interruption of their paintings and making the unique ones. 

We are very encouraged by positive experience they had through painting and the fund we raised to help with Sons & Daughters, a non-profit organisation to reach out the sex slaves in the darkness.

Excited to have more sessions to come! 

P.S. God knows the best - I met this amazing photographer @Joshua Lee on the plan back from SG, and all the credits of these wonderful photos are to him! Amen!

Christmas 2017 is the fullest Christmas that I have never had. I felt so much loved by God when I can give and bless others.

When I was asked by my church to design christmas cards to help raise fund, I was so happy - that I can contribute something by using the gift that God has given me. Ideas just kept coming. Remembering those in the darkness, I chose to use unconventional colors for Christmas, more of a cooler and darker tone, and white which signifies the light.  (The Christmas Collection)

It's just so amazing to hear so many positive feedbacks and I am so thankful for those who love the designs of the cards. So So So grateful for all the fund raised to help the city. Truly, it is so blessed to give. 

So what christmas present did I get this year? ermm... not even one physical gift. 

But my heart is so full with love that filled by the people around me who are so supportive and encouraging. All the words and hugs and laughters. A...

The meaning behind every design of this year's Christmas collection

Christmas is a magical time where it celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. It marks the humblest beginning. He brought peace, love and hope to us all.

For this Christmas, just want to make the christmas collection more meaningful. 

For the Hope 

Christmas is in the winter where is a season that associated with coldness and darkness. The blue tone just sounds the right match with this.  The sparkles reveal the light which shines through the darkness, and even flowers are growing. 

This design honors those who serve faithfully Hong Kong Sons and Daughters- a NGO where they serve in the darkness - red light district, Wan Chai in Hong Kong. They are so dare to reach out to the darkness to pull those ladies who are suffering to the light with the hope of the gospel.

5 more days to go for Christmas! So excited! 

Being a millennial myself, I still love writing christmas cards. What meaningful is it to sit down and write to people who have added joy to your life the year along. Showing gratitude and appreciation with handwriting is different from a click of message. The time we spent on the cards is the most valuable thing to our beloved ones. And with our each individual handwriting makes it unique.

In a digital world where the tangible is vanishing, many agreed that social media was an appropriate way to send seasonal greetings. Surprisingly, people who are buying christmas card from this site are  generally aged between 25 to 34 years old. Some even requested customized cards. 

Would this 170-year-old tradition be dying out soon? Hopefully not so soon. I still believe that physical cards has their own appeal. When people buy cards, they appear to be choosing for more expensive and personal options. According to a stud...

It was such a pleasant moment working on this piece when my mind was filled with the image of the little baby. So precious, so small, so sweet. I am grateful to have made this to the parents!

Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17

Life is such a blessing from God. How wonderful this is! Wishing all the baby bears have a delightful journey!

Sons and Daughters is a charity that seeks to reach out to men and women in the red-light districts of Hong Kong. Its mission is to interrupt the darkness by sharing God's love.  

Handmade cards come with warmth.

They are made by hand to show that we are thinking of those in need, that we care about those trapped, and that we wish them well.

You are always welcome to join me in a cafe to create meaningful cards for the good cause!

When one of my ex-colleague left in a very short notice, there was no time for preparation to farewell her, not to say buy her flowers! So instead of real flowers, I just grabbed a company card with the company logo on it - and sketched on it quickly. At least she can keep the flowers forever now - 

Hope her memory there ended well! 

xoxo,

Joanne
