Hsi-Mei follows the Chinese philosophy, which encourages students to use their Chi:
“The power comes from inside the artist and flows onto the rice paper. The goal is to achieve inner peace with oneself through the act of creating. The artist draws energy from the inner tranquility and translates it to the paper. The brush strokes are very important in the development of the picture.”
