Artist and Chef specialized in Chinese culture.
Cindy was born in Hulunbur, Inner Mongolia in China. In her life, she has found two great passions; art and cooking. She has engaged in a lifelong pursuit in perfecting her skills in both.
She has been participating in art and calligraphy competitions since she was a small child, and has won numerous awards and honors. In 2012 she became the last apprentice of painting master Zhang Zhishu, the great-grandson of Yehenara Natong. Thus continuing line of Yehenara Natong's art tradition, dating back to the Qing Dynasty.
She was taught how to cook by her mother at a young age and continuously yearned to learn as many recipes as she could throughout her life. As she grew older her father would often challenge her by presenting her with food from the finest restaurants with the expectation she would be able to reproduce each dish the following week.
Recently she has moved to America. Since that time she has won many awards in art and cooking competitions both regionally and internationally and has shared her culinary talents through two restaurants. In her spare time, she teaches her art, language, and food through various community venues.
