Xiaoling Cheng, award-winning watercolor artist otherwise known as "The Peony Goddess"

Xiaoling Cheng, otherwise known as “The Peony Goddess,” has long been celebrated in Shanghai, China, for both her humanitarian efforts and her extraordinary artwork, which depicts the unofficial but assumed national flower, the peony. 

After 25 years of experience as a successful artist, she is now gaining recognition in the United States for her artistic talent as well as her dedication to helping those in need.

Born near Jingning County, Gansu Province, China in 1968, Xiaoling pursed a lifelong love of painting from an early age. After graduating from Northwest Normal University, she relocated to Shanghai to perfect her art all while raising two young children, caring for her aging parents and running a successful business. 

While balancing the roles of wife, mother, caretaker, businesswoman, and artist, Xiaoling worked diligently to develop a unique artistic style, which honors traditional Chinese art. Her work is also inspired by the modern Shanghai culture and the beloved traditions of her hometown.

When she became ill with a life-threatening disease, Xiaoling came face-to-face with her own mortality. She vowed that if she survived the next ten years, she would dedicate that time not only to caring for her family but also giving back to the seniors and less fortunate of the hometown that she so deeply loves.

It took Xiaoling three years to fully recover her health but since doing so, she has kept her 10-year promise by helping the disadvantaged children and the elderly of her country. Her pledge to serve has now surpassed the ten-year mark as she continues to passionately raise funds to help widowed, elderly, and handicapped children in her homeland.

In 2016 Xiaoling notably held a large charity exhibition of her work and served as art broker to other artists for an unprecedented humanitarian event in Shanghai “Let Art Go with Charity.” The exhibition proceeds helped many of the elderly in her hometown and enabled the building of a much-needed senior activity center.

In 2019 Xiaoling’s passions brought her to the United States for an exhibition of her work at the Red Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Attended by hundreds including state and national dignitaries, the artist was overwhelmed with proclamations and awards honoring her artistic and humanitarian achievements.

She also visited the United Nations headquarters in New York at the invitation of Dr. Charles, Secretary General of the United Nations Chinese Friendship Association, a non-profit organization.   While this event was intended to raise awareness and funds to build a Christian Church in her hometown and be the launching pad for multiple exhibitions and charity events to help those in need, plans were abruptly cancelled in March of 2020, with the U.S. onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Through no fault of her own she was stranded in the United States, unable to travel home. Even so, her outlook remained positive and forever committed to her promise to serve the less fortunate as well as to share the unique gift of her beautiful peony art. Through an exclusive partnership, BlackRock Medium and Xiaoling Cheng.
