(order and form ( with a comma in between ) generally used in Hong Kong to distinguish

Kam Fu Bernadette LEE-PISAPIA
(order generally used in Britain and Canada )
Bernadette is the writer as well as the publisher
the name chosen for the publisher ( not a registered company ) has two
LEE-PISAPIA, Kam Fu Bernadette ( Hong Kong format), or LEE-PISAPIA Kam Fu Bernadette ( Italian format) . Therefore, the comma in between does not mean two distinct individuals as it is used to distinguish the last name and the first name in the Hong Kong format. For the other format, capital letter has been used to indicate the LAST NAME from the first name.
( from 06/09/2023, the Italain format is officially transformed to LEE Kam Fu Bernadette coniugata PISAPIA . However, the fully extended writing of my hyphenated Last Name is still maintained as my Canadian and Hong Kong identity : Kam Fu Bernadette LEE-PISAPIA)

Hockney was my source of inspiration since 1979 ( after I was introduced his coloured-pencil drawings during my drawing class by my professor in Canada )
I was a student at Edinburgh College of Art in 1980-81
During that period in Edinburgh,
whenever I felt not quite productive, I would go to Hockney ( flipping through his -continued in production-new books) -immediately my creativity would come back
That was the period I began reading incessantly on David Hockney by David Hockney
the period when Hockney published his drawings on how he made images while making the paper
When you are a student in Britain receiving the similar kind of training in Drawing as David describes in his diary, you tend to understand the inner picture
of why one is forever beneficial to do long studies in Drawing . (I was lucky to go to Edinburgh College of Art where they did not cease the training for 150 years)
recently he returns to trees and somehow, he makes us look at trees again
masters teach one to see again...
So the question is not whether you want to be this or that kind of artist, but how some artists would enlighten you in certain period of your life by showing you there is no deadend to artistic possibilities.
The problem arises when we forget the very obvious: a simple way of making a mark on a space, a simple declaration of a love statement, or a simple way of understanding oneself-such as a diary/introspective understanding of life
these quick videos
without pretensions are only to remind me that sometimes I too forget to look in a way most artists in centuries have been looking : such as oriental prints of plums against the blue sky, or the Cezanne way of depicting pines
Once you start seeing nature
as the first artists who impressed you with how they first interpreted that particular moment of nature, you become friends with that artist, that piece of nature chosen because you are suddenly linked between the past and present via creativity. Infinite
comes in. Mutual sharing in different time and space comes into play.
Cultural differences subside.
We feel humbled and blessed.
That is why we say thank you to all who have inspired us.
Within that intimate realm, we are silently
linked to one another.
The power of creativity is vital, for everyone of us.
