午後放晴的天氣,關穎以一身優雅的灰色私服走進攝影棚,纖瘦的她絲毫沒有改變,而是歲月沉澱後的知性與優雅,從她的姿態中脫穎而出。

The afternoon sun shines again after the rain, as Terri Kwan arrived ABOOK STUDIO wearing classy grey sportswear with grey tone fur slides, her slim figure remaining unchanged, and years of precipitated intellectuality and elegance make her appearance more beautiful than ever.

母親的慈愛在天地萬物之中,都蘊含著無窮的力量,就如同春天百花齊放的景致,擁抱我們的心靈。成為母親之後的關穎,眼神倘露出對於孩子們的關懷愛意,談起此刻的生活,言語中散發著源源不絕的幸福氣息。善良美麗的她為愛延續,全心投入基金會,繼承父親的慈善事業,日常也不吝在Instagram分享與孩子們的點點滴滴,宛如觀看她甜蜜的日記般,充斥著一家人幸福的歡樂笑聲。

全心投入慈善公益

香奈兒女士曾經說過:「優雅是顯現在內在與外在同樣美麗的時候。」這句話貫穿了關穎的生活觀,現在的她,正在與專業人事討論並執行「財團法人中華民國腎臟基金會」的年度規劃。數年前因腎臟疾病病逝的叔叔,令關穎體會到人生的無常,「失去」使她獲得了生命中的「答案」,她積極投入「財團法人中華民國腎臟基金會」,希望用自己的時間填滿病友及家屬心中的空缺,除給予經濟之上的挹注,從辦活動、生日派對、節日等,也捐贈頂級醫療器材,提供腎臟病患及家屬最好的支援與設備,協助走出艱困與病痛。不僅如此,關穎也拾起「日盛教育基金會」及「日盛藝術基金會」的權責,傳承父親助人的理念,透過教育及藝術的角度,灌溉社會看不見的角落,在基金會的幫助下,實現他人的夢想並讓藝術在台灣及國際舞臺中綻放。「日盛藝術基金會」以宣揚中華傳統優良文化藝術、提升文化生活品質、促進國際文化藝術交流為目標,都是基金會關懷的對象,而最近在新冠狀病毒疫情的席捲,關穎也特別參與錄製《enya FASHION QUEEN》感謝防疫醫護人員影片,希望透過言語與行動一起關懷讓社會多一些溫暖,雖說關穎這樣的幫助與關心已經不是第一次,但是心裡的悸動始終振奮人心,關穎也表示希望未來,能繼續帶著孩子們一起去關懷社會與快樂助人。

自我意識脫穎而出

關穎的Instagram貼文如調色盤色彩斑斕,她的生活總是令人意猶未盡,不論是時尚搭配或是家人風景,鮮豔的影像及專業的構圖,都有著濃厚的藝術氣質,是許多女孩們憧憬的對象。雖然關穎多了許多身分,她將家庭事業擺在自己之前,卻總是能在繁忙的步調中,找到自己的平衡,對她而言的「愛自己」,其實可以很簡單也很放鬆,關穎坦言:「要做自己不難,怎麼樣都要撥一點時間給自己,像是我認識的媽媽們不論是閱讀、運動、追劇、演講或是我自己跟別人開了一個很有意義的會議,就會覺得自己又成長一點點,心裡很飽滿很滿足,如同瑜珈的根本,回歸到自己的身心靈深處。」舉凡為了實踐一些目標,而失去原有的步調及平衡,那對她來說便會本末倒置,有時候適時的放下也是愛自己,但在一切打理好之後,那種放鬆地去實踐興趣嗜好,是對一個媽媽而言非常重要的!最近看到關穎的舞蹈影片,靈活的舞姿看了心情也跟著活躍起來,關穎用表演藝術來鼓舞人心,簡單的初衷蘊含著無窮能量,哪怕只是短暫的幾個小時,她更了解自己,也從中得到一些屬於自己的收穫。《enya FASHION QUEEN》團隊深受關穎舞蹈的感動,特別邀請關穎編舞,影片的中間是重量級客串的攝影師林炳存先生,一次性順利完成了一部精采的「TikTok」影片。

美滿家庭歡笑不斷

關穎的父母親在她的生命中扮演重要的角色,想起從前嚴格的家教管理,是為了傳達正確的觀念,為此關穎感到十分知足感恩,更是有了另一個身分後,體會到「為母則強」的偉大及慈愛。關穎在日常中看見年幼時自己的影子,隨著時代的變遷,她不斷在母親的角色中,尋求更好、更完善的教育,不時放手讓他們長大,但也一點一滴將父母親給予她最重要的「價值觀」傳遞給孩子們。當了三個孩子的母親後,關穎心中有百般的感觸,關穎著重在教育的多元性,安排烹飪、畫畫、舞蹈、美食、旅遊及踏青運動,美學的累積是才華的養分,孩子們接觸藝術及玩樂學習後都發展出獨特性,像是哥哥PhiPhi喜歡觀看Discovery Channel的動物,姊姊CC喜歡烹飪及舞蹈,在尋找孩子們不同的愛好後進而培養他們,而多樣化地去嘗試也是一種品味及生活的累積。母親節的到來,令關穎想起大女兒CC已經到了親手做卡片的年紀,收到卡片的當下內心既幸福又開心,在屬於全家人的母親節,今年也是三代同堂地慶祝,關穎也不忘向香港的一家人打視訊祝福。其實關穎還有一個神秘專長「藝術創意活動總監」,每年孩子生日都有一個主題創意,從生日蛋糕、甜點、背板、燈光及音樂,每一首音樂都自己剪接,關穎說:「其實小孩的派對不一定要制式化,像是去年CC的生日會舉辦了Disco主題派對,繽紛的Shot杯伴隨70及80年代的音樂,大人跟小孩盡興在舞池中跳舞。」關穎半開玩笑地說:「如果沒有出道,創意生日派對非我莫屬!」關穎的笑容感染了大家,她用藝術及美學角度切入學習教育,用玩樂及時間伴隨孩子們成長,用關愛及付出傳遞人生的價值觀,她是關穎,她的母愛如百花齊放的花海絢麗燦爛。

Among all creatures, the affectionate mothers have infinite power as if the blossom scenes in the Spring embrace our souls. After becoming a mother, Terri Kwan’s eyes reveal her care and love for children. When chatting about her current life, she was talking with a sense of happiness. She’s a kind-hearted and beautiful mother who passes down the love by devoting herself to the charity foundations, which inherited from her father.

Devoting Herself to Charity   

Gabrielle Chanel once said, “Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside.” It best describes Terri Kwan’s current lifestyle. At present, she’s reviewing and taking part in the execution of the annual planning of the “National Kidney Foundation R.O.C.” After the kidney disease caused her uncle’s death several years ago, she felt the uncertainty of life and “losing” him gave her the “answer” of life; she has pro-actively devoted herself to “The National Kidney Foundation R.O.C.” and hoped to fill up the emptiness that patients and their families are undergoing through her dedication. In addition to supplying financial donations, including sponsorship for activities, birthday parties and holiday events, etc., she has also donated top medical facilities as the best support and equipment for kidney patients and their families that help them walk out of the suffering from illness. Moreover, Terri Kwan has taken the responsibilities of “Jih Sun Education Foundation” and “Jih Sun Art Foundation” to pass down her father’s philosophy of being generous in giving help. Through the perspectives of education and art, she nurtures the unseen corners of the society; with the help from the foundations, she fulfills other people’s dreams and makes art accessible to the public in Taiwan and the world. “The Jih Sun Art Foundation” has aimed to sponsor the people or organizations that promote prestigious traditional Chinese culture and art, improve the quality of cultural life, and contribute to the art communication worldwide. Recently, during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Terri Kwan has joined the enya FASHION QUEEN in the production of a video for appreciating the infection prevention and medical personnel. It’s hoped that we can work together with actions to care and give warmth to our society. Although it’s not Terri Kwan’s first time giving support and care for others, her energetic mindset always inspires people. Also, Terri Kwan indicated that she hoped to continue lead her children to show care and offers help to the society.

Outstanding self-consciousness

Terri Kwan’s posts on Instagram appear like a beautiful color palette; her life has always catching people’s attention; either the mix and match fashion style or family portraits or sightseeing scenery, the bright and vivid images and the professional composition reveal a strong sense of art that many girls are eager for. Despite Terri Kwan having multiple identifications, family is always beyond herself, which she always finds balance in her busy life. To her, “loving herself” can be simple and relaxing. Terri Kwan says it frankly, “To be myself is never a challenge, I always find time for myself, it’s like those mothers I know, who always making progress in their lives by reading, doing exercises, binge-watching, or giving a speech. I always feel full and satisfied after a meaningful joint conference with people in the foundations; it all seems like the principle of yoga, to return to the mind and soul in depth.” To her, those things that aim to reach a target by sacrificing original pace or balance in life are like putting the cart before the horse. Sometimes, releasing stress properly is the way to love oneself. Once everything is done, living relaxingly to put pleasures and hobbies into practice is particularly important to a mother! During these days, we have seen Terri Kwan’s dancing videos, her amazing dancing cheers up our mood. Terri Kwan uses performance art to inspire people, her simple initial holds infinite power; maybe it’s just a short time, a few hours, she knows herself better and harvests something belonging to herself. enya FASHION QUEEN has been deeply influenced by Terri Kwan’s dancing; we invited Terri Kwan to compose the dance; also, with the renowned professional photographer Joshua Lin (Lin Bing-cun), together we made a Tik Tok (video) successfully in only one take.

Endless Laughter in a Happy Family

Terri Kwan’s parents play a vital role in her life. Thinking that the strict family education in the past was to deliver correct values, Terri Kwan is grateful for her parents. Since she has this other identity, she realized greatness and benevolence behind “strong mothers.” In daily life, she sees herself in her children; growing up day by day, and she’s been doing her role as a good mother, seeking better and more comprehensive education; she leads her children to be independent and passes down the most precious “values” from her parents. After being a mother of three children, Terri Kwan has gone through so many heartfelt experiences. Terri Kwan focuses on the variety of education, she arranges cooking, painting, dancing, gourmet lessons as well as travels, outings and sports; the accumulation of aesthetics nurtures talents. Allowing children to get in touch with art and learn happily, it becomes easy to find the uniqueness of each child. For example, PhiPhi likes to watch animals in the Discovery Channel, and CC enjoys cooking and dancing. After finding the different preferences among children, she started further education. Besides, arranging multiple try-out is a way to develop a great sense in life. This coming Mother’s Day reminds Terri Kwan of her daughter CC is by the age of making a handmade card, when the first time receiving the card, Terri felt so happy and joyful. On Mother’s Day, Terri thinks it is a holiday belonging to all family members, it’s still a celebration of three generations together. Terri Kwan will remember to make a video call to her family in Hong Kong and send them her blessings. On the other hand, Terri Kwan has a secret expertise, being an “art director of creative activities.” Every year, the birthdays of her children are celebrated with a theme, including birthday cake, dessert, background setting, lighting and music. She edits each music playlists personally. Terri Kwan said, “If I were not a celebrity, I’d surely be the best organizer of creative birthday parties!” Terri Kwan’s laugher is contagious, she uses art and aesthetic perspective to lead her children’ s education, she accompanies her children’s growth with entertainment and time, and she shows concern and cares to those in need, she is Terri Kwan, her maternal love is like a blooming floral sea, that will forever be beautiful and dazzling.
