CARRIE CHAU 鄒蘊盈

Hong Kong born, and currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
Carrie has studied at School of Design at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Chelsea College of Arts, UK. After returning to Hong Kong, she has worked as an in house designer and painter at Homeless, a lifestyles store for six years. She has also created her signature characters BlindFly and BlackSheep. During these years, Carrie has held several solo art exhibitions including “Blind Fly” 2005, “Black Sheep” 2007 and “Indigo Child” 2009 at Hong Kong Time Squares.

In 2010, Carrie received the Hong Kong Ten Outstanding Designers Award. She decided afterwards to become an independent artist. Through living abroad and deep travel to places like the Amazon Rainforest, Patagonia, Cuba, Easter Island, Peru, Bolivia, Chiang Rai, Bhutan as well as her favourite place Luang Prabang , she got inspired with a free range idea for her work. Besides painting, Carrie loves gardening, farming and flower remedies, she began to turn her backyard into a beautiful sustainable home garden in 2012. Carrie is now focusing on the creation of her new painting series “Game of Life” , and she is also actively involved in community service and education activities.
