about Fan Lu

Painting is a calling from God. After leaving a full-time job working in the Natural History Museum in 2016, I came to the USA to study painting. It was a calling for me to paint. It is an important work given to me by God, and I cherish every moment. In September 2017, my first baby boy was born and I became a Mom. Being a young mother and an artist is a big challenge because I have to study hard while pursuing my second Master’s degree, and raise a child simultaneously. Throughout my journey, I know that without God I can do nothing. The traveling and painting journey let me experience the healing process. So far, I have lived and studied in Shanghai, Brisbane, London, Florence, and San Francisco. Currently, I am living in Alameda, California.
