I am a painter whom searches for beauty from anywhere. In my art, my goals are not only to show what I see and feel, but also to share the deeper emotions behind them.
My portraiture is a way of revealing a state of mind that is shared by all human beings, a common concern about happiness, fulfillment, mortality and eternity. These paintings convey the deep and subtle feelings involved in the connection between my objects and me. The layers of emotion I feel for them results in the quality of my works.

I also like Plein Air paintings, doing which gratifies my love of the wonders of nature.

I am current a guest artist, visiting professor teaches art at Southern Utah University. Previously I was a faculty member at the School of Art at Renmin University in Beijing, China. I earned a Master’s degree of Philosophy of Aesthetics from Renmin University of China, and a BA in Chinese painting fromCentral Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China.
