Sally Shang Ming Tsou was born in Shang Hai, China and grew up on the colorful cosmopolitan yet primitive island of Taiwan, providing her a highly stimulating visual environment and upbringing.
She spent part of her adolescence in the Philippines. The fecund greenery of these populated islands lends an unusual mix of the primitive raw energy and the sophistication to Ms. Tsou’s work.
Ms. Tsou’s arrival in the US at the age of 18 marked her first experience with seasonal variations and cultural diversity. Since then her work began to reflect the many and varied threads of her life experiences. She has shown in art exhibitions and art fairs nationally and internationally and has won many awards.
