  1. When did you first start drawing?

  2. I first started drawing around age of 8 or 9. My family was poor back then and so I often went to my neighbour's to play and drew on the ground with chalk I was given. The moment I started drawing on the ground, I fell in love and couldn't stop drawing.

  3. Have you gotten any formal art education?

  4. Yes, I went to the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts and graduated with a major in Lithography there.

  5. What's your favourite medium to use?

  6. I enjoy both pastel and oil painting.

  7. Where do you find your inspirations?

  8. I often look through the photographs taken during my trips to Mongolia and once I have a subject I want to paint, I then think about the landscape and background that would fit the subject.
