Hà was born and raised in Hải Phòng, Vietnam, but is currently studying and working in Hanoi. She’s a senior at Vietnam University of Fine Arts, where she’s majoring in Silk Painting. She also works as a freelance illustrator.
Likewise, she appreciates how straightforward and basic art expression could be, how bright and joyful colours are, and how easy and unpretentious it is for viewers to comprehend the message in a piece of art.
She cherishes everything she has with a deep sense of gratitude, which is clearly present in her artworks. The pieces are all her simplest way of observing the world around her, while also reflecting on her inner world as an artist. She always hopes that when people look at her art, they feel at ease with empathy.
From an artistic standpoint, she believes an artist must always stay true to themselves and understands what they need. For the creation of fine art to blossom, self-discipline and one’s desire to constantly improve is truly essential.
