About Me

 

 

I'm an art professor, teach painting and drawing in St. Louis Community College at Forest Park. I graduated from Northeast Normal University of China at 1982 with BFA and received MFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. 

I believe to be an artist is a personal life choice. It has changed my destiny and altered the path of my life.

Art influence my way of observing the world, shaped the mode of my thinking, and eventually became the most effective format to express my feeling and thought.

Art is the core of my life, it pleases myself and benefit people and the world. 

I had more than 60 different exhibitions since 1982 and many of my works had been collected by Universities, colleges, companies and privet collectors.
