Tan Sok Oon’s Calligraphy 陈淑温的书法

Tan Sok Oon (Chen Shu Wen) is a professional accountant. She has a busy working schedule which requires her to visit China frequently. The frequent visits have provided her a good opportunity to keep in touch with the Chinese culture which has a history of five-thousand-years. She gradually she develops a keen interest in Chinese calligraphy.
Five years ago, she decided to enrol herself in the calligraphy class conducted at the Singapore Calligraphy Centre and learned the art under Professor Tan Siak Kwee (Chen Shenggui). She started with the Liu and Yan styles and later the Zhao style.
Since 2005, she actively participated in the annual calligraphy exhibitions held at the Singapore Calligraphy Centre.
The calligraphy shown here was selected to participate in the 2009 Singapore Calligraphy Annual Exhibition held from 25 to 28 April at the Singapore Calligraphy Centre.
The poem Travelling in the Autumn Hills was written by Tang poet Dumu.
Travelling cold hills afar along a narrow road,
White clouds were rising from a farmer's home.
I stopped my cart to enjoy the wood of maple
Being redder than flowers in the vernal.
