I worked in the biosciences field as a research scientist for 34 years. Two award winning photographs I took during a memorable trip back to China, my homeland inspired me to get into photography. Since than I have continued to pursuit 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 or perspectives that represent how diverse and abundant the world expresses its various forms and beauties. I delight in capturing the extraordinary beauty of an ordinary subject and in creating something new that is already there.
