Yen-Ching Chang was born in Taiwan in 1980. She received her BFA in Design from the Chinese Culture University in 2001. Because of her love for painting, she started learning the foundation of drawing and painting and was instructed by her mentor Yimaukun in Taiwan from 2007 to 2009. In 2012, she got her MFA degree in Figurative Painting from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
Yen-Ching Chang has many years of art teaching experience as a private teacher at her own atelier and as a public school teacher. Her paintings are both reflections on and celebrations of life, and she enjoys the challenge and freedom of painting from life. Yen-Ching seeks to bring out the artistic spirit within her subjects and strives to express the feelings and emotions she experiences from daily life through her representational paintings.
The main body of Yen-Ching's work lies in the field of portraiture, figurative and landscape painting. When she paints, she connects with her subjects through careful study and observation. She sees visual storytelling as one of the bridges of communication between her and the viewers. Yen-Ching's goal with work is nothing less than to touch the viewers' hearts.
Artists from the late 19th century inspire Yen-Ching greatly. Her favorite artists are Ilya Repin (1844-1930), Thomas Eakins (1844-1916), Jules Bastien-Lepage (1848-1884), Giacomo Favretto (1849-1887), Antonio Mancini (1852-1930), John Singer Sargent (1856-1952), Isaac Levitan (1860-1900), Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923), Valentin Serov (1865-1911) and Nicolai Fechin (1881-1955.)
