I grew up in Shanghai, a city with a huge population and a lack of green space. For me, green spaces or nature are a luxury. In the busy and stressful urban life, they are particularly precious. They have become a symbol of freedom, a sanctuary where I can escape the noise and immerse myself in the embrace of nature.

I remember when I was about to graduate from an art university, a trip to Tibet completely changed the trajectory of my life. When I witnessed the towering snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear lakes, and rushing rivers of the world’s rooftop, I was deeply moved by the magnificent scenery. The grandeur of nature and its boundless vitality made me realize my own significance, while also purifying and nourishing my soul. From that moment on, I embarked on my artistic journey with a sense of awe and a mission towards nature.

Since immigrating to Canada, I have traversed the nation from East to West, capturing its beauty through countless photos and painting numerous landscapes. My artwork has garnered numerous awards and found its way into various collections. Words fall short in expressing the deep love I hold for this land, my soul's home. Through my art, my aspiration is to kindle people's appreciation for nature, urging them to safeguard this precious and sacred earth and contribute to shaping a brighter future for generations to come.
