Mui-Joo Wee was born and raised in Singapore. She came to the United States to get her education and received her master degree in Social Work at University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. She started painting in 2003 and quickly became immersed in the process. In her paintings, whether it is a tree, a rock or a mountain, the subject becomes alive with distinct personality. Often, the result is accidental which makes it all the more joyous. Her free and loose style conveys movement and energy, and an impression of the spiritual essence in the ordinary. Her paintings are displayed at The Artists Gallery in down town Flagstaff, Arizona and Work of Artists in Scottsdale, Arizona.
