About Maggie Ho
Maggie was born and raised in Vietnam. She immigrated to the United State in 1986. She received Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration at the University of Washington in 1991. In 2012 she established her own studio and running business as Artisansoul.
Maggie has been a dedicated student of Chinese art since first applying brush to paper as a child. In 1997 She began studying under Vincent Ma, a renowned calligraphy master, who himself was educated by Hanlim, a high ranking official of literature in the Ching dynasty.
With her calligraphy skills firmly established, she then searched for other outlets. She contacted Zuolie Deng, whose expertise is impressionistic Chinese water color painting. He opened Artisansoul's eyes to an entirely new world and spent countless hours teaching her many subtle methods of manipulating paint and ink.
In 2004, Hong-Duan Yang, recognized Maggie's talent and took her under his wing. Well known in China for his paintings of Eagles and Swallows, Mr. Yang taught her the intricacies of his advanced watercolor techniques. Under his watchful eye, she has developed an abundance of new ways to express her remarkable artistic vision.
Maggie has frequently displayed her paintings at both individual and group exhibitions in both the Northwest and in Guangzhou, China. In 2009 her painting “Double Luck” was chosen to be part of a book celebrating the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People Republic of China. She also has been publishing a calendar filled with her favorite pieces each year since 2008.
Maggie is currently Vice President of the Washington Overseas Chinese Artist Association,
Committee member of the United States Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Association.
