Sally Lee Hoi Har 李慧霞


Sally loves arts when she was a little girl. In the school, She loves the nature so much and childhood life connected to the different types of insects and plants. From early years, she is always intrigued by colors, forms, and shape and inspired by surrounding nature to create artistic presentation of all motive of life. In 2000, She graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts from the Conservatory of Fine Art. In 2007, she attended her education in Fine Art in MFA Program despite of her hectic life . She is very passionate in art all of her life where her job involvements are always related to art . She enjoys her art related works and regards art as the pulse of her life. She works in various styles and media such as water color, acrylic, oil painting and Chinese painting. She paints rain forest, still life, scenery, abstract art and anything in nature that inspires her. The natural beauty is so awe-inspiring her. She expresses life and nature interaction in her paintings. She has been participating in many exhibitions nationally and internationally.


“Art is the beauty of life”. It is mean to express my love and compassion for life and nature.

The Power of Nature

I enjoy and feel in love with nature and hopefully through my paintings can encourage others to respect our mother earth. This painting “The power of nature” was created when I was in Mongolia in the year 2014. At that moment, I felt an inner power to express this painting. Brush stroke on the painting represented the power that absorbed from nature into my work. We as living beings are nature and therefore the power of nature is also the power of us. The power to change. The power to redefine ourselves and conceive nature and humans as one.


I paint, I think, I study….

My inspiration is from nature and universe, and the result after transformation is abstract expressionism painting. Human needs to be connected to the nature as it is vital element in our life. Nature is powered by far away sun and everything in our life is connected. I let the colors flow seamlessly in painting to make the connection naturally with changing time.
