Brushstrokes in Time

This superbly researched and beautifully told fictional memoir is about love, art, and Chinese history and politics.



“This is the book I struggled not to write. I buried the pain along with my Chinese name and changed my fate.”

Brushstrokes in Time is the fictional memoir of Chinese artist Little Winter, who tries to re-establish the bond with her American daughter, telling the story of her emotional and rebellious past. While growing up in Communist China, Little Winter discovers talent and rebellion, joining ‘The Stars’ art movement for freedom of speech in an era where self-expression and love was a dangerous act.

Little Winter and her haunting love story connects us to a time of hope for freedom, and to a man frustrated by being kept in small shoes.

Based on real life events.
