Jialing Chen born in Taipei, Taiwan. She enjoyed her childhood grown up in countryside Hsinchu, her maternal grandmother’ home. When age 3, her freehand drawing of country rabbit was praised by her mother who was an elementary teacher. She thought to paint is a very natural thing, and her textbooks always full of graffiti inevitable. Luckily growing up in an art-friendly family, she enjoyed learning piano, Chinese calligraphy, Chinese painting, caricature during childhood. Jialing was encouraged by her junior high school art teacher MeiHuei Li 李美慧 and naturally chose fine art of study later on. She earned a B.A. in Art and Craft Teaching (Taitung University, Taiwan) , then became an elementary teacher for two years which really was not her ambition. Since she has traveled extensively to American since teenager, enjoyed wondered museum and gallery herself. Later she went studied in San francisco and earn an M.A. in industrial design(SFSU, California). Then she worked as a product designer for 5 years in Taipei, Taiwan, during that time, she can't avoid a voice inner herself that she want to be who she should be, regain the brush to paint.
In 2010, she took a short class from Shieh Ming Chang 謝明錩, a renown watercolorist in Taiwan, she was fascinated by the unexpected and flow of watercolor. Mostly self-taught, Jialing embarked on a professional art career in 2015 and started exhibiting publicly.
Jialing love the uncontrolled and flowness of watercolor media which full of experiment and spontaneously. She is good at catch the light and atmosphere of the scene. Her goal is to express the mood, poetry, ambience in her painting , not to copy the nature.
Now Jialing works as a full-time artist, giving course, exhibitions, and keeps saying words, seeking beauty, creating magic her way in watercolor art. With her husband's great support encouragement, now live in Taipei with her two lovely daughters.
