Yang Haiying has been my most dear friend and teacher for the past few years, even though we've never met "in real". The spirit and passion with which she spreads the love for beauty are truly amazing. She combines the exquisite traditional art form with a fresh approach that makes it possible for anyone to learn and practice.

With love and gratitude,
- Maylin
