In 2017, when she returned to China, she was invited by Dr. Yu Kong-Jian, an academician of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, as the artistic director of the Turenscape Acadamy. During this period, an art study tour was held, and the organization participated in the preparation of international art festivals and music festivals. The Turenscape Academy established ‘Liu Ying Pottery Studio’. In addition to teaching in the studio, she took an apprentice under her wing and trained her to continue the studio’s mission when she went back to the United States. For the last two years, she has been engaged in oil painting. The works are derived from what I see, I feel, and I think as I travel around the world. Express and convey my emotion in my painting. I love to travel. So far, I’ve had the privilege to visit all seven continents and over 60 countries. One of my favorite countries is Mexico. Moved by the beauty of this country and the kindness and simplicity of the people, I just have to paint them. I especially like that they love life and music. Almost everyone can sing and dance. I went to Mazatlan for vacation many times over the last 20 years. Last year I finally chose this beautiful city as my second home. I now have lived there for most of the past six months, completing twenty-five oil paintings based on local landscape and people.
