  • The Story of Ponder Brush


    The brush, we believe enables an extension of our vision, emotions and thoughts expressed by the pondering of the ink on paper. Through the training in the way of the brush, can a path be created to extend ourselves beyond lifting and pondering on the brush.


    Our Founder and Grand Master Choi is an integral practitioner and cultivator of the classical Chinese arts. She believes the world of Arts especially the Classical Chinese Arts, though ancient in its 5000 years of history, still has much relevancy in our modern times to empower ourselves and others to make meaningful societal contributions through self-cultivation and become enlightened in the subtle gestural arts like calligraphy.


    Ms Choi is dedicated to promote the Chinese Classical Arts and Culture as a way of life along with the many other worldly cultures Humanity shares. She routinely utilises her skills to embody her core mantra in assisting those less financially, spiritually and/or emotionally privileged through charitable activities and efforts in empowering the communities around her.


    The inception of Ponder Brush has its roots based in Perth, Australia, the emerging Hub part of the GMT+8 regions of high economic and social activity in the Asia-Pacific and in the World. Ponder Brush is a boutique creative enterprise and studio with the mission to promote and provide access to the world of Chinese Classical Arts and Culture for all communities to benefit.




    我们的创始人和采大师是中国古典艺术不可分割的实践者和修炼者。她相信艺术世界,尤其是古典中国艺术, 虽然巳是在5000多年的历史中是古老的,但仍然与我们现代社会有很多相关性,使我们自己和他人能够通过自我修养达到社会贡献的意义,并得到启发。特别是书法艺术。


    采女士致力于推广中国古典艺术和文化作为一种​​生活方式,以及许多其他民间的文化艺术。她经常利用自己的技能体现她的核心口号,通过慈善活动和努力赋予周围社区权力,帮助那些在财力,精神, 或情感方面较弱的社群。


    心思筆的创立始于澳大利亚西省珀斯,这是亚太地区及全球经济和社会活动高度发达的GMT + 8地区的新兴枢纽部分。心思筆是一个创意企业和工作室,其使命是促进和提供中国古典艺术和文化的世界,让所有人们都受益。


    Ponder Brush acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
