When I sit at my easel with a blank canvas, I’m in my world. I’m in control, I know what I’m going to paint. I want my paintings to tell a story, but without words, dramatic, emotional, sometimes theatrical.
The conspirators here are doing a deal, but it’s not going well and there are tensions none of them want to give way the guy in the far left is a bodyguard and he’s ready to jump in to protect his boss.
You can see the menace in their eyes, feel the tension the smoky atmosphere and unless they strike a deal it’s all going to blow up.
Blanc a New York-based magazine wrote an article about me in the November issue; it went on to say: Ta has a special interest in character development and portraying “a little of the night…coming from my dreams and imagination.” This combined with her passion for colour psychology draws the viewer in and leaves them there, whether Ta is using oil on canvas, charcoal and pastels, watercolours, acrylic on wood or pencil.
To say that Ta is a versatile artist is an understatement—creating modern, contemporary, and folk art that includes portraiture and figure drawing in its vast subject matter and explores periods of Impressionism, Expressionism, and Cubism with influences from Botticelli to Lowry and Magritte.

Over the last few months, the world has indeed gone mad, and my heart goes out to all those who are affected and sadly lost their life because of Coronavirus.
My family and I have been in self-imposed lockdown for a while now only going out for food shopping, I buy all my oils and canvases online most of my oils coming from the UK, and I am well stocked on both and aim to keep on painting
I wanted a little humour in my work and had this in mind when I painted Going going gone and Steak and chips I think they highlight some of the madness we are experiencing at the moment.
I have been heartened that my works are still selling, In the last few weeks, I have sent my work to the UK, to the East & West coast of America, Germany, Singapore, Taiwan and a couple of places I've not had the shipping details yet. Only today I had a painting delivered to New York and received a messaged they love the work. I was watching a news clip last night about the deserted streets of NY and thought of my painting on the way there.
There are good teams still supporting me, my online galleries the courier services and the strong message from all that it's business (maybe not as usual) but as best we can, and I give thanks to them all. And my collectors where would we be without them?
Painting is my life, and if my work brings a little joy and happiness to people, then I can ask no more.
I hope you all stay safe and keep washing your hands.
