I was born in Hong Kong and moved to the United Kingdom in 1970. I have been travelling around the world ever since, painting and exhibiting while living in New Zealand, Sudan, Tanzania, Pakistan, South Korea, Egypt and Bosnia & Herzegovina. I am now living in London with my family.

I studied traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy in Hong Kong which I developed further during four years in Korea. I also studied fine art and design in London. As an illustrator and painter I like drawing in traditional Chinese ink which I grind from an inkstick on stone to create the right degree of thickness and shade. I then apply the ink onto single or multilayered rice paper. I also love creating artworks with mixed media on canvas or on textured surfaces. Mixing both eastern and western techniques and styles often results in unusual interpetations of familiar subjects.

I have held solo exhibitions in Seoul, Cairo, Alexandria, Sarajevo, Florida and New York and also exhibited in London at The Mall Gallery, Alexander Llewellyn Gallery, Chelsea Old Town Hall, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Banqueting House, Oreleans House Gallery,The Stable Gallery, Richmond Town Hall and Kingston Museum. I am now regular showing my works at Contemporary Art Fair in Newbury, Windsor and Surrey.
