She is a painter of simple beauty, intense emotions and passionate love. This is the reason why her paintings resonate with the viewer . They appeal to everyone for their delicate exquisite style, cheerful fresh colors, freedom-loving and daring/intrepid manner. Prof. Dr. Trinh Quoc Thang, Member of Vietnam Writers’ Association said.

“I am absolutely happy in the world of fine art, which makes it possible for me to escape from the real world. What a gift is the amazing feeling of total freedom! The paints make it happen. At the end of the day, I would like my paintings to bring love, joy, and happiness to everyone” Hien said.
