Chinese brush painting & calligraphy


Selma Lan started to learn traditional Chinese brush painting and calligraphy from her father who is a writer, journalist and artist, at a young age. She has won several national awards of her calligraphy and brush painting work.


Ever since moving to Austin Texas, she has been actively involved in non-profit and charity organization events to help them raise funds by selling her art work. In 2011 during Austin's annual Dragon Boat Festival, her Chinese brush-painted paper parasols were being sold at the FCC (Families with Children from China) booth. Within an hour, those popular parasols were sold out. 


By order, Selma has custom created art work for clients for different occasions, such as birthday gifts, anniversary souvenirs,and anything artistic and creative.

“The Four Seas Are Home”

Selma designed & wrote this traditional Chinese brush calligraphy art for one of her best students as a gift. It says “the four seas are home” 四海为家 (Sìhǎi wéijiā) which means one feels they have a home everywhere in the world.
