He also writes ink-brush poetry in characters with English translation. Through his calligraphy Haining wishes to bring more blessings, prosperity, wisdom and peace to our community. People have used his calligraphy artwork in church christening, wedding, and education for young children.
Haining had BA degree in English literature from Nanjing University and PMC from SPEA graduate school of Indiana University.
