As an immigrant Asian–American woman artist, Li Ching Accurso wants her art to be an encouraging message to the Asian American community and beyond. Her work elevates the voices and perspectives of the community, showcasing the creativity and resilience of Asian Americans. While Li Ching works in the western traditional medium of oil on canvas, one can see the Asian sense of beauty in the subject of landscape, floral compositions, and poetic representations of moonlight. These oil paintings, ceramics, and watercolors serve as a celebration of the Asian community’s history and a testament to its perseverance, inspiring others to take pride in their cultural roots and to keep their traditions alive. Further, her life as an Asian–American woman artist has been a faith journey; her identity is in Christ. Beauty, hope, joy, wonder, and curiosity are the aims in my art and everyday life. Li Ching’s art work not only adds to the broader cultural discourse but also provides a platform for underrepresented voices to be heard.
