Jin Hou





I was born in Beijing, China and came to New Zealand in 2002. I am a watercolour painter currently living with my husband and 2 years old son in Palmerston North, New Zealand. I have a bachlor degree in Mass Media from the University of Canterbury.Throughout my life, I was interested in many creative fields and painting is my favorite.

I take inspiration from my travel and meditation. Painting for me is part of my life just like we need to exercise to keep fit, it is also a way to express myself and communicate with others. When I am painting, I put my thoughts, energy, emotions, and feelings into it.

My endeavor is to construct paintings that can trigger any memories or emotions inside you, also to bring you love, peace and light.
