I was born on May 30th, 1958, in Hong Kong, the eldest of four sons. My father was an artist. I grew up watching him create works of incredible beauty on canvas and I knew that I would someday also learn to capture the same enchanting atmosphere that his works possessed.

I have always had a keen interest in nature. Having a strong love for travel, I would capture the landscapes I saw on those journeys in my paintings, including the explosive volcanoes of Hawaii, snowy mountain peaks, and dreamlike Chinese vistas.
