Candy Zhao, a watercolor artist and early childhood educator was born in Beijing and now lives in Adelaide, Australia.

 

"Capturing the humanity of simple scenes or looking for strong emotional connections are my big passions. When people see my paintings I hope they respond as they would when reading a good book. They may feel strong emotions or be overcome by a sense of inner peace. That is the power of Arts, and so what I strive for."

 

​赵晓迪,画家,幼儿教育工作者。生于中国北京,现居澳大利亚阿德莱德。

 

“我喜欢赋予画中人自己的情感联结,也喜欢带有人文气息的简单画面。我希望人们可以通过我的作品得到像读过一本好书一样的体会,或许感受到强烈的情感冲击,也或许能找到自己内心的平和。那就是艺术的感召力,也是我所追求的。”
