Words from Tian Hong Youth Art Contest Judge Panel Below:
Young artists, have fun, express yourself via arts, and enjoy your artistic journey!
Artist & Linguist
As a passionate member of our judge panel, Danuta brings with her a rich background in Linguistics and 25 years of experience as a professional artist. She has offered numerous art workshops in the past and her artworks have been exhibited and acquired by various museums, galleries, universities and private art lovers across her home state of Iowa and the nation.
Farzi loved painting as a child and only got back to painting in 2006 as a way to relax from her demanding job in the IT field. She attended an oil painting class for 8 years, originally focusing on old master’s techniques before switching to digital art in 2015. These days she is back working with oil on canvas and trying on new painting techniques. She gets inspirations from her walks in the nearby Bayland.
CFO & COO of Tian Hong Foundation
Susan has worked in various Finance positions at HP and Google before co-founding and working as CFO and COO of Tian Hong Foundation. She likes to write, dance and paint.
