Randy Lu was exposed to art at a young age.   Visiting permanent museum collections and special exhibits were treasured family outings.  She has visited many fine art collections in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, and developed a preference for Western Impressionistic and Far Eastern painting. 

She had her first art class at age six.   Over the years, she experimented with macrame, India ink, woodblock printing, charcoal pencils, and soft pastels before finding her niche in oil pastels and watercolor.

Living overseas in Western Europe and East Asia has had a profound influence on her thought and approach to art.  Her travels in the U.S. and abroad have inspired numerous paintings.

She is fond of lush landscapes, ragged mountains, oddly shaped rock formations, and animals with character.  

She established her company, Randy Lu Pastels And Watercolor with the goal of offering out of the ordinary stationery and giftware that make the everyday special.  She enjoys bringing art into people's lives.
