Biography


 
Biography
Born in a peaceful town on water in South China, I have an inherent love for natural beauty. Those drizzling days, small bridges, meandering streams, and waterfront houses are still fresh in my memory.  Calligraphy and Painting in Chinese-ink are very popular in my hometown.  Influenced by the surroundings, I began to paint at a very young age.  Following my instructor, a brilliant artist  graduated from  China Central Academy of Fine Arts, I studied arts and received strict training on  drawing  and  painting in high school.

As a Bachelor of Engineering and Master of both  Economics and  Psychology,  I  had a successful career in finance for more than 15 years. However, my interest in art has never faded through these years.

I paint with several local artists in both oil and acrylic, and learn from great masters through their books and workshops as well.
 
Motivated  by  the constant  encouragement  from my family, I finally  dedicated  myself to an art career.  Joined the Collymore Atelier for Emerging Artist Program in 2015, I had my 12 paintings exhibited in a group show in April and another 14 in December 2016 , both at Frye Art Museum art studio, Seattle. Also, my solo shows were held successfully in several parties.  Thanks to my wonderful collectors and everyone who loves my art, I will keeping painting and share more work with you in the coming year.
