    Smith earned her MFA from UC Berkeley. When she is not drawing in her own studio, she can be found at the de Young Museum, making art with kids from all over the Bay Area.

Informed by both traditional Chinese painting techniques and a lifelong exploration of experimental brushwork, Hong Kong artist Wesley Tongson created intricate and expressive paintings inspired by the natural world. Using watercolor, ink, brush, and pen, work with artist Jennie Smith to create an abstract landscape of a place that holds special meaning for you.
