Chuang used to work in oil and later shifted to watercolor after discovering she had a brain tumor. Due to the toxins that come with the oil painting practice, she was forced to depart what she knew and loved and faced a new journey, one of loss and discovery. After some time off, completely stopping her practice, she picked her faith up and started her garden healing series in a new medium. Watercolor is gentle in its nature and patient in its more unforgiving process. One can look at this work and see the artist's embracement of the new and surrender to the unknown.
