“Scholars in a Clouded Gorge”
I commissioned Alexandra to paint a custom piece that fits into my new living room, which does not have too much wall space. I saw her "Sampans in a Clouded Gorge" and loved it -- except, there was no space to hang a whole scroll without overwhelming the rest of the room. So I gave her a very vague description of what my subconsciousness suggested -- clouds, mist, a gorge, and a way to cross the gorge without boats. And Alexka delivered a masterpiece! The scholars crossing the bridge are exactly what I was looking for. In an 11x14 format, she captured my soul in a painting, better than I could ever capture it in words myself. And I deal with words for a living!

As soon as I saw this piece I fell in love with it! As a teacher (once a teacher, always a teacher) it speaks volumes to me. Teaching is not just about letters and numbers, but helping to create children with understanding eyes with which to look at our world. As I write this, it reminds me of a book I have used in the past, entitled, "The End of the Beginning", by Avi. It is about 2 other small creatures (an ant and a snail), but the message is the same: Never discount what we can learn from little things. I am looking forward to receiving my print, and I will definitely take a picture of its resting place (of honor).

I'm still debating where my rooster will live permanently, but it's currently in the company of other prized possessions - a Salish Sea bathymetric map, Pendelton blanket, and reed basket flower. I have a feeling it may need to strut through a few rooms this year though, going where inspiration is needed. :-) Your artwork is stunningly detailed and beautiful and I'm so excited to have an Alexandra Chan original!

"Hissing Dragon" and "Ox in Water"
I ordered two Zodiac prints for my home. My late husband was part Chinese and a Dragon (of course!). I am Ox. These prints bring wonderful memories back to me of our many years together and the quality is exquisite. I am thrilled about Alexandra and her many talents. I am so excited to have these and will treasure them always.

I was familiar with the outstanding quality of Alexandra Chan Photography and was excited to see her new offerings in the world of Chinese arts. I ordered the Two Herons for my home. I knew it would be good, but I was honestly stunned by the exquisite brushwork and delicate lines. It is truly a masterpiece that would proudly grace the walls of any room. Delivery was quicker than expected and communication was excellent. I am ordering several more prints as Christmas gifts (although I know it will be difficult for me to part with them as such).

"Tiger Lapping at a Stream"
Stunning. Those eyes! Absolutely gorgeous. My husband was thrilled to get this on Christmas morning! Thank you.

"Dream", and More Praise for "Two Herons"
I ordered "Dream" in a medium scroll format and"Two Herons." One was for myself and the other was a gift. It is an understatement to say how beautiful and serene these pieces are, and how lucky I feel to have discovered this talented artist.
I'm looking forward to commissioning more pieces from Alexandra to hang - both at work and at home - for their beauty and the spiritual harmony they present.

"Tranquility Yields Transcendence"
I ordered the "Tranquility Yields Transcendence" scroll. I wanted to present a very important customer of mine with a one-of-a-kind appreciation gift. The scroll was a home run! (see my customer's feedback on Alexandra's painting below). Thank you! I will be coming here again for future clients.
"I wanted to say thank you for the lovely painting.... I was really touched to receive such a thoughtful present and I have hung it up in my house in the hallway where it looks perfect!!"

Six Koi with "Looking Forward, Never Looking Back"
I ordered the Six Koi with a personalized message, backed and ready for framing. It's even more beautiful in person! It was the most heartfelt and personal birthday gift I've ever given. Thank you!
