Bio:

Kristie Ming Tan Ngo is a native of Malaysia and immigrated to the United States in 1992. Her paintings have won numerous awards and in 2007, her artwork, "A Scissortail Returns " was showcased in the Oklahoma Centennial Chinese Cultural Exhibition and is now permanently part of the Oklahoma History Center collection. Her fascinating residencies explore Chinese watercolor or brushwork with bamboo brushes. In addition to traditional "rice paper" paintings, she helps students transform paper plates into beautiful "china". Students may also make book markers, greeting cards or traditional fans and she even combined Japanese Origami (paper folding arts) together with her Chinese watercolors and is highly appreciated by the kids, besides she also translates their American name into Chinese characters and have them write their own Chinese name on their artwork.
