Li Zhou was born in Shanghai and realized her love of expression through art at an early age. During her secondary school years she studied watercolors under artist Christopher Wu. Many of her works pursue the theme of women and Li uses her own language of painting to express primitive and complex inner thoughts. The concept is not of superficial beauty in female form; Li is conveying a silent and powerful energy. This is the process of finding her way. Li’s works appear in private collections in Victoria, interstate and internationally.
