I feel the responsibility to address subject matters that our society tends to neglect or deny, including the adverse effects of environmental hazards. The impact of human activity upon agriculture and wildlife, the food chain, nature, and plants, are matters crucial to my research and creativity. My work consists of exploring the intermediary space between death and life, decay and growth, and wrong and right, in an attempt to understand as much as to criticize. We need to keep ecosystem balance, and get along with nature harmoniously purposely and consciously if we want to realize sustainable development, to advance human civilization.

. My artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Art degree in China in 2005, and then worked for a few years as an assistant to Prof. Qingyuan Hu, Professor of calligraphy, stone seal carving, and Landscape Design, at Tsinghua University, the best University in China in this field. I used this experience in landscape design to work independently, including helping with surveys for a mining company. After moving to the USA, I earned my second degree in Construction Engineering from Western Michigan University in 2014, gaining experience while founding and also teaching at the Confucius Institute of Western Michigan University. In Fall 2018 I completed my Master of Fine Art degree followed by a Master of Architecture in Fall of 2019. Both of these degrees are from Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I also won an Asia Artist Award in ArtPrize 10.
