His art work is fresh and has a poetic mood, he also uses color elegantly. This is the pursuit of all painting. There are only a few foreign artists like him with such an in-depth study of Chinese painting, Regarding Chinese painting techniques expressed in porcelain, it can be said that he is the first Western artist to achieve this success.
