|Eoyang Hsun (1923-2003) was born in Shanghai as the first of four children of Eoyang Keh. He received his Christian name, Peter, and his artistic name, Yin Ye in China in the mid 1930s. Eoyang Yin Ye appears on many of his works as applied by a seal.
In 1937 he came to the United States with his mother, his brother and his two sisters. He married in 1959. He received a Civil Engineering degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1962, and worked as an engnieer for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
It was not until 1972, after Peter returned to Colorado and settled in Golden that he began to paint. He was a success, quickly completing White Beauty and other masterpieces. In 1983, Peter moved to Eugene, Oregon, and in 1993 to Avalon California, continuing to paint watercolors at both places.
