For her enthusiasm in painting,

artist Yimaukun in Taiwan. In the fall of 2009, she came to the
U.S. to continue her study. Currently, she is pursuing MFA in

Artists from the late 19th century
inspire Yen-Ching greatly. Her favorite artists are Ilya Repin
(1844-1930), Thomas Eakins (1844-1916), William Merritt Chase
(1849-1916), Jules Bastien-Lepage (1848-1884), John Singer Sargent
(1856-1952), Valentin Serov (1865-1911), Isaac Levitan (1860-1900),
Antonio Mancini (1852-1930), Ivan Kramskoi (1837-1887) and Nicolai
Fechin (1881-1955). She spends the majority of her time painting
and drawing from life. She wants to express the feelings and
emotions she experienced, especially the relationship between
people and their environments, with her paintings.
"I want to express the feeling
and emotion I experienced that touched me through my perception,
especially the relationship between people and their environments.
As a painter, I want to build and compose my paintings combining
gestures from the figures with their surroundings in a harmonious
and balanced way to show that beauty is everywhere, in any situation".
