For many years Anna shared her art and her conversation with some of us fortunate ones through her classes in Chinese brush painting.

For those of us who had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Wu, a mainstay of the local art scene, and sharing art and ideas with her, the wonderful memories shall remain. She influenced many artists, and some of them have gone on to teach, train and educate others. I'm grateful for having known her. Such is the wheel of life - and she is greatly missed!
