was born in Nanking, China at a time of tremendous turmoil and change.
She was aware of war, danger, disease and separation, but was always
grateful of the adoration and protection of her loving parents.
She grew up traveling with her family, moving from country to country
and following her father's career as a diplomat. She realized the
sameness of all humans at a young age.
One of her earliest memories was her parents observing her coloring
an image and commenting: "This daughter will grow up to be
an artist!" That truly became her lifelong direction. From
the age of seven, she followed several masters, learning traditional
Chinese style paintings: flowers, landscapes and courtladies.
At 19, she began to study in USA, at California State University
at Long Beach. In 1971, she received the Bachelor of Arts degree
in drawing and painting.
Hui-Ling and her husband Yiannis Mavroidis of Megara, Greece have
two children. They have lived in Greece, England and now in Thalwil,
Hui-Ling has been blissfully happy painting and teaching painting.
She had the desire to combine the East and the West, to find an
aesthetic common denominator where the two meet artistically and
spiritually. Now with the maturity of time, she simply allows herself
to relax and paint, and her works naturally show a blend of eastern
and western influences.
Hui-Ling wishes to be the passage which allows positive energy to
be crystallized into an image for others to see, feel and experience.
She paints only when she is tranquil and happy, believing that painting
is a meditating experience, a prayer for the blessing of the positive
force of the universe. She paints the beautiful, the serene, the
universal harmony, the ultimate goodness of the human spirit.
