Dancer and Painter Inspired by Shen Yun

“What inspired me was all the dancing. Dancing is another way of language too. So after all, it’s like with the Chinese painting, because a painting is worth a thousand words.”

“It reflects on fantasy and reality.”

“I just felt so glad that there are Chinese in this world who are [determined] to relive that culture and keep it alive as best as possible, and I’m hoping that one day that they will bring it to China—China would be a much better place.”
