Leung takes her inspirations from everyday moments as the base of her creative endeavours. Her artworks blend her personal free-spirited nature with a touch of vintage comic style, guiding viewers towards her insights into human nature. She excels at distancing herself from conventional perspectives, carefully observing the minutiae of life, and infusing her unique awareness into her paintings, resulting in her instantly recognisable and distinctive style. Her works are not only depictions of imaginary scenarios or reimagined experiences but also contemplation of human relationships, emotions, and humanity itself.
Leung's philosophy of happiness revolves around her gratitude towards life. She embraces the subtle details of life and records them with humour and joy. Her narratives and visual expressions create a whimsical and energetic atmosphere, capturing those small yet immensely joyful moments that bring people together. When people enter the world created by Leung, even the most reserved and serious individuals cannot help but reveal unrestrained smiles.
"Giant Consort" is the name of Leung's studio. The bursts of energy from her works and her passion towards ordinary daily moments are highly contagious. Her brush carries not only pigments but also her simple and optimistic nature. Her paintings are brimming with vitality, reflecting her insights into human nature, guiding viewers into a space filled with endless imagination.
