Pompoms, acrylic paint, pipe-cleaners and stickers on paper plate

 

My superhero name is 春天 (Spring) and my superpower is to bring people happiness and joy (“带给人高兴和开心”). I’m the happiest when my son and daughter visits me. Red is my favourite colour, and the colour of happiness, joy and maternal love (“开心,高兴,母心”).

I have created a red bowl and 11 peanut biscuits. My son had bought me a box of peanut biscuits last year. 

 

I enjoy eating peanut biscuits. Creating these shapes with clay brings back memories of making pink “ming kueh”. All these cookies are for me to eat!

Mixed media on round acrylic sheet

I am optimistic, intelligent and cute. I like the colours blue, orange, grey, red, green, yellow, pink and brown. This wheel design captures my personality and all my favourite colours. My wheel reminded me of a 光碟 (CD Rom). My favourite singers are 尤雅, 张学友, 刘德华 and 费玉清 (You-ya, Jacky Cheung, Emil Chau and Fei Yu Qing) while my favourite song is “ 爱你一万年” by 尤雅. I love my husband, son, daughter, and brother-in-law. Love and family are important to me.
