I was awarded a grant from the Peninsula Community Foundation in 2004. This grant enabled me to “return to my roots” and study with master painters at the China Art Academy, in Hangzhou, China. I was able to study with Master, Mr. Gou Zhen Yen and other instructors from the academy. I studied Chinese art history and learned a lot about Chinese art materials. This trip was one of the highlights of my career and I can’t thank the Peninsula Community Foundation enough for the opportunity. Here are some of the highlights of my time in Hangzhou.
