Be Ky's life as an orphan in the war-torn country was full of hardship, yet she avoids the sadness and poverty in her drawings. Instead, her art is filled with caricatures of children playing, women smiling and mothers embracing happy babies."The drawings represent the life I wish I had as a child," BeKy says. "I want to express the hope for a happier life."BeKy met her husband, Ho Thanh Duc, in 1964 and they married the following year. They prospered during this period, raising a family of four children. Good fortune and freedom of expression ended when North Vietnam conquered the South in 1975. Communist officials prescribed socialist-realism and ordered
artists to glorify workers. Duc and BeKy refused to compromise. They felt art without emotion was dishonest, so they decided to leave their homeland. An unsuccessful attempt to flee by boat landed Duc in prison for two years.
BeKy and the children lived in poverty, surviving on rotten fish and salvaged vegetables. A severe hearing loss, suffered when she was abused by one of her mentors,
became the family's key to freedom. In 1989, the Vietnamese government allowed them to leave the country for medical treatment. Resume:
