I was born in China. Later I moved to Hong Kong and started doodling on text books, hanging out on the Colony's delightful tropical beaches, and listening to Rock and Roll for spiritual initiations. Upon moving to the USA, I worked my way through a succession of painting styles from realism to surrealism and geometric abstraction, before developing a unique figurative expressionism that concerned with archetypal subject matter to reflect my own spiritual evolution. After a series of exhibitions. Eventually I managed an art gallery for a collective of artists. Meanwhile doing airbrush and engraving style pen-and-ink for the advertising industry to pay my bills. As the personal computer developed into the ultimate graphics tool. I was the lucky recipient of an international grand prize for 3-D graphics at the annual Seybold Convention. In which I gained unprecedented publicity through news articles and magazines worldwide, and at once recruited to create market-leading computer games for industrial leaders such as Microsoft, Sony and Electronic Arts. Then after a four years stint, amid the Internet bubble I became a creative director for a teen oriented web site. Today I have an e-commerce site selling my livelong collection of Buddhist statutes. With its success and personal maturity I paint and draw again in relative freedom.
The main emphasis of my recent painting is on feminine beauty and spirit, stylistically in figurative abstraction and realism combined in soft flow and striking strokes. Please drop me a line if you are comfortable in nude or semi nude poses. I offer both payment and photo CD for compensations.
