WE'RE UP ALL NIGHT TO GET LUCKY.JPG

Manna Huang studied fine arts at a college in China under several Chinese masters, such as Tu Zhi Wei (涂志伟 Oil Painting American master, signature member ) and Shan Bai Qin(單柏欽). Manna works with oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoals, and Chinese ink with brushes. With these tools, she brushes life into the people and landscapes on her canvas. She hopes above all to create art that moves. She aims for her art to tiptoe between reality and dreams.
Through her pieces, her viewers might glimpse her deep passion for the life of her subjects. She thrives on portraits, figures, landscapes, abstract, and still life, with portraits being her favorite form of expression. It is the challenge of capturing a person’s personality that draws her.
By balancing between realism and her imagination, Manna frees her art pieces from the confines of reality. There is margin in her art for viewers to dream. She hopes to  capture not only the physical aspects of the subject, but also its spirit.
She is a signature member of the Akron Society of Artists and teaches art to students in the Akron area.
