Gaa Wai

Hello! Welcome to Gaa Wai.

Here, you can follow my personal journey as an amateur artist and my thoughts on the visual world.

I’ve had small creative bursts ever since I was a wee thing, and then I had a continuous flow of creativity from 2008-2010. Between 2010 and 2017, I sadly drew very little and eventually stopped altogether. No reason in particular. I just gave myself some “me” time… and I’m a little scatter-brained.

But I’m back now and with a vengeance… maybe.

I was born and raised in California, USA, and I currently reside in the Central Valley, and I’m using my Chinese name because I think it sounds pretty and I’m being sentimental. Nonetheless, I think it suits this blog and its purpose.

 or “Gaa” means “family” 

瑋 or “Wai” is a word for a particular kind of jade; metaphorically, it can mean “valuable.” 

I hope you enjoy your stay here, and feel free to leave a comment or to send me an email.
