Original Oil & Mixed Media Paintings Ceramics 绘画与陶瓷艺术


Wen LePore has been interested in art since she was a child.  Both her parents were artists – her dad was a musician and her mom an actress.  She received formal artistic training from her father in music. In college, she studied mathematics and then became a math teacher for years when she was in China.  Her dream, however, always was to be an artist.

In 2008, she had a chance to start her formal art education at Northern Virginia Community College. She finished her drawing and painting class there with professor Sherry Trachtman and continued to study ceramics with professor William Schran . She thinks all the art form are the same whether painting, sculpture, music, dance, literature ....  The difference is they are using different art languages to describe people’s feeling in order to explain their emotions. She researched many famous master painters, such as Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh, Juan Gris, Philipp Otto Runge, Jacques-Louis David, Titian, and Gustave Moreau. Subsequently, Sam Houston State University professor Dr. Enrique Mallen helped her research Pablo Picasso. 

Abstract art is her favorite. She tries to make natural landscape become more abstracted.  She thinks creating an abstract artwork is the most difficult job for a painter. That’s why abstract art is always full of attraction.  Most of the time she likes to paint plein air.   She paints what she feels is beautiful.  Sometime she will paint to music in her studio. She can feel colors by the notes of the music. The exciting part is that music can help her creates different brush strokes.

Wen is member of Arlington Artists Alliance   and  The Art League.
