Painting has been my lifelong passion. My artistic vision is based on the concept of art as form. I’ve studied and taught painting, design and color for most of my life. I was professor of art at Spring Arbor University from 1976-2003 and have also taught in three different universities and art schools in China 1998-2003. Over the years my painting style has evolved from abstract expressionism to my current vivid realist style, with subject matter of landscape, nature and wildlife. Currently I’m very much interested in how this subject matter relates to the cosmos and research being done in space and astrophysics. Currently, I’m painting and living in Michigan with my wife Li Qin, who is also a photographer and businesswoman.
