My Little Bio

I worked in the BioSciences field as a research scientist for more than thirty years. Test tubes and centrifuge were the center of my daily routine. Two award-winning photographs I took during a memorable trip back to China, my homeland, inspired me to get into photography. Since then I have continued to pursue my interest in photography.

Art and science each take a turn in how I understand the world around me. As a fine art photographer, I apply the same principles I used in scientific research: search and research, examine and reexamine and explore concepts from different perspectives. I explore the world around me as I look for reflections, angles , colors, textures and perspectives that represents how diverse and abundant the world expresses its various forms and beauties.

Bridges between art and science, creative and interpretive experience and the individual and others are the themes that characterize my life and resonate in my work. I delight in capturing the extraordinary beauty of an ordinary subject and in creating something new that is already there. I take my camera with me so I can share what I find with you.
