Jade Wu is originally from Beijing, and by way of a few places around the world, has happily found her home in Durham. Some of her favorite things are: wildlife, mountains, water, sun and stone, large kitchens, books, paper, wood, clay, cloth, dogs.
Jade studied drawing at the Beijing Art Academy as a child, and later was introduced to acrylic and oil painting by Taiwanese artist Hank Ma during her teens. She has since developed her own styles in oil and watercolor, which emphasizes stillness in wildlife. Her work is primarily representational, with aesthetic influences from traditional Chinese painting, including the use of negative space, calligraphy, and minimalist compositions.
She has exhibited in Beijing, Toronto, Ithaca, Boston, and Chapel Hill.
