This quote, attributed to a Zen poet captures the essence of my artistic work and this website:

"A person who is a master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their
play, their labour and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation,
their love and their religion. They hardly know which is which and simply pursue their vision of
excellence and grace, whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or
playing. To them they are always doing both."

Chinese translation:

这句名言来自一位禅宗诗人,它也生动描述了我的作品和网站所要体现的精神。
一个精通生活艺术的大师,往往不会刻意去区分工作和玩耍,劳动和休闲,精神和肉体,
学习和娱乐,爱和宗教信仰的不同。他们几乎不知道孰是孰,
而只是在简单地追求着他们眼中的卓越与优雅。是工作还是娱乐,都留给他人去评说。
而对他们自己来讲,工作即是娱乐,娱乐即是工作。












IASPAW is a non-profit organization founded
on the premise that many talented artists and
writers go unrecognized and unappreciated
for their creative contribution to society, and thus,
need a venue for artistic exposure to promote
their continued contributions. IASPAW provides
the venue and its credential comes from within,
from one's feeling of creative self-worth. With
support from a communion of fellow artists and
writers in the same circumstance, this association
can collectively foster a renaissance of artistic
expression through self-proclamation worldwide.

Our mission is to provide added recognition
to self-proclaimed artists, writers, poets,
photographers, musicians, and other
creative souls through worldwide exposure for
their talent, renderings, and writings, which are
often unrecognized and unknown to the public.
