Pablo Picasso said "Had I been born in China, I would have chosen to become a Calligraphist instead of a painter". It demonstrates that the beauty of Chinese Calligraphy is highly appreciated in the world of art. Greatly influenced by her father, Hong has been practising Calligraphy for decades. Her works were previously exhibited in China and Finland as well as featured on the official poster of a movie production named Jade Warrior. She was also invited to have an exhibition at "the first European Bob Dylan Symposium" held in Caen, France, even the American Consul attended its opening ceremony. Her clients included a professor from the Royal College of Art and university students majoring in Chinese language.
Several years ago Hong was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to learn Jingan & Changshou Gong, a type of Taiji practised secretly within the Chinese Taoists communities. It shares a common rationale with Chinese Calligraphy practice, of which the essence is the follow of Qi and energy.
Further Hong was born and grew up in Yunnan Province, where 25 types of the Ethnic Minorities people reside. This gave her an advantage to learn a wide range of dances since childhood. When studying in universities, she was also selected to be the Head of the Literature and Art Committee, and acted as a lead choreographer and dancer in various performances to celebrate seasonal festivals.
