17 years being a full time artist, the journey to this day,  face numerous challenges and obstacles to survive. Someone once asked, "Are you able to live to become a full time artist?" I stand by myself to pursue my career as a full time artist. Although I have no formal art education, I just believe that, if we are truly interested in what we do, surely we will succeed. Up to now I am still alive, able to eat and be happy with what I do. Art has been in my blood, like the free flow of the stream, its water is inseperable when swung at even with the sharpest of sabre. It is one of the required elements in my life just like the air that we breathe in.

“The Principle” This painting are more than a painting,  it is about the journey of my life, art are inseparable in my life, just like water that can not be separated from humans.  Life necessities.  I was trained to paint water drops at the beginning of my career. And until now i still do.  Water is a vital source of cultural meaning, which not only sustains our biological life but also our imagination and spirit. No culture or tradition known to us is indifferent to it. It is a symbol of purification, rebirth, and reconciliation, even as it is also a source of animosity and conflict. Water, with its close connection with fertility and life, figures deeply in religious and metaphysical worldviews of virtually all peoples

(From Principles of Water Etchics By: Bruce Jennings, Kathryn Kintzele, Paul Heltne )
"Water is dynamic, elusive, determined, and a fecund source for the human moral and spiritual imagination. We talk about water as a medium of disease transmission, as a fluid essential for biological functioning, and as a thing to be manipulated with wells, pumps, sluice gates, dams, and dikes. When we talk about the scientific and engineering aspects of water, we should not lose sight of the fact that water is also a vital source of cultural meaning, which not only sustains our biological life but also our imagination and spirit. No culture or tradition known to us is indifferent to it. It is a symbol of purification, rebirth, and reconciliation, even as it is also a source of animosity and conflict. Water, with its close connection with fertility and life, figures deeply in religious and metaphysical worldviews of virtually all peoples. There is a prototypically two sided aspect to the way water is represented and imagined in most traditions."
