Vivian T-N Ho is the artist and pen name of Truc-Nhu Ho, PhD.
I am a Vietnamese-American painter who displayed an artistic talent during my early years in Hue, Vietnam. In addition to my formal art training at the University of Utah, I have a BA in French (University of Michigan at Ann Arbor), an MA in criminal justice (Sacramento State University), and a PhD in the same field from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. After 20 years of successful university teaching in the US and the publication of my dissertation-based book, To Catch an Art Thief: A Memoir on the Heyday of Art Theft, I returned to the art world to realize my wish to paint full time. My goal is to combine what I love most in art: The simplicity of classical figurative painting and the exuberant use of colors in contemporary abstract painting. Lastly, I hope my cultural and educational backgrounds have enriched my work!
