Artist Statement:

“I enjoy capturing the soul of a person, paint it and reflect its beauty.

For the last thirty years, I studied both eastern and western arts, philosophy and history. I was nourished by thoughts and painting skills from both sides. I majored in oil painting with a focus on portrait, and also received my degree with concentrating on Byzantine art. I had published books and taught arts for years. It enables me understand the world and life, and professionally paint the beauty of each creature on canvas.

The Creator gives unique beauty to each person. Good portraits are timeless, and they can be heirlooms telling their stories of people and their families. I love to paint real people in front of me, and let my artworks reveal their uniqueness, and let their legend pass down for generations.”
