Note: Cai Xiaoli was born in 1956 and grew up in China where, under the influence of her artistic parents, she started to paint when aged only four.

Whilst exhibiting at a number of exhibitions, Cai Xiaoli has also been the recipient of a prize at the seventh International art exhibition in Beijing for producing the most outstanding work.
