Sami Tsang is a Canadian-born Chinese woman artist who uses a vocabulary of images to express her anxieties, hopes, fears and things about her life and future. As the youngest child of a conservative Hong Kong family, her voice was not welcomed. In Tsang’s work, she simultaneously gives herself an outlet through the narrative sculptures and reveals our raw emotional experiences.
Tsang studied traditional Chinese painting for seven years before returning to Canada to pursue her passion for art. She began her study of ceramics in the specialized art program at H. B. Beal Secondary School in London, Ontario. She enrolled in the ceramics program at Sheridan College (2015), where she was introduced to the broader clay community and guided attentively by her professors and peers. Tsang earned a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramic Art at Alfred University (NY) in 2021.
Tsang was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence (Ceramics) at Harbourfront Centre in 2022.
