Eng Pua is a signature member of Watercolor Society of North Carolina and currently serve on the Board. He is also a signature member of Pennsylvania Watercolor Society and holds memberships in various regional and national watercolor societies.
He was born in Singapore and has resided in North Carolina since 1985. He was trained as a scientist and worked as a software professional for many years before he retired to paint full time. With his natural talent and thirsty vigor to create, he soon became an award winning artist.
Detailed and realistic depictions characterize his earlier paintings. His recent paintings, however, place emphasis on expressiveness. To him, how to effectively convey his emotions and feelings about his subjects to the viewer is far more important than just faithfully depicting the details.
Many of his paintings are now in private collections in the US, Canada, and Singapore.
