Born in Chinatown S.F. After regular public school day was over, I went for 10 years to Chinese school daily to learn to read and write Chinese. We used brush and ink for writing the Chinese characters. With his background, I took over 10 years of private Chinese Brush Painting lessons. Moving to the midwest, I started entering Art Fairs and won a lot of prizes. 35 years later, I am still loving exhibiting at art fairs.
