Lea Zhang, originally from China, studied Japanese language and literature, then taught at a college in China before coming to the United States in 1987.
But since high school, her hope was to one day become an artist. Life and chance made it unrealistic for her to learn professional painting until she found books and videos online. Mr. Yarnell’s online art school captivated her passion for painting and helped make her artist dream possible.
Nature is both her inspiration and her subject. She finds that her creativity and imagination wanders most freely on the canvas of a landscape painting. With the skills and principles she has learned from Mr. Jerry Yarnell, she will be freely painting the beauty of nature, and sharing these painting with all that enjoy nature.
