Tsun Ming Chmielinski discovered her love for traditional Chinese painting while living as a child in Hong Kong. There she was identified as an exceptional student by the late master L.S. Shaw, a professor in the Department of Fine Arts and the Chinese University of Hong Kong and one of Hong Kong’s master painters. After spending much of her childhood training in Chinese ink painting, she came to the United States in 1975 for the purpose of academic study, achieving a BA in finance, an MBA and a Masters in Communication. Tsun Ming spent the next decade pursuing a finance career, until her passion for artistic expression gradually became again the central focus of her activities.
Since arriving in the United States, Tsun Ming’s artwork has been greatly influenced by Western media and technique. The great diversity of style, medium and subject matter in her paintings today is evidence of Tsun Ming’s rich artistic and worldly experience. She has continued to study art under the guide of several teachers in the Boston area and in such major institutions as Mass. College of Art, the Museum School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Wellesley College and the DeCordova Museum School.
In addition to her constant learning, Tsun Ming also taught workshops at The Art Center in Chelmsford, Mass., teaches workshops at the Dedham Art Association, as well as private students in her studio. Her art has been shown in various juried shows throughout the New England area. She has won awards including the first prize of the pastel and drawing category in the Duxbury Art Association Winter Juried Show 2002/2003; and the third prize in 2003/4.
She is a member of the UVA Council of Advisors. She participated in UVA's EPIC at the Harvard Ed Portal in 2014 and in The Context of Community at both the Athan's Cafe Art Gallery in Brookline and the Harvard Ed Portal in 2015. Her personal artist website is www.tmgallery.org
