Artist Statement

When we slow down to evoke an inside journey, such as eating an orange presently in the early morning; having a tranquil nap at the noon; dancing with a tree in the silent night, we all constantly generate artworks to the world as creativity naturally manifesting no matter we are among the people or living alone in the mountain.

The greatest artist creates masterpieces through studying how to thoroughly live a life.
