He was born to a peasant family in Taicang (- now Jiangsu Province) and studied painting under Zhou Chen in Suzhou.

He painted with the support of wealthy patrons, creating images of flowers, gardens, religious subjects, and landscapes in the fashions of the Ming dynasty. He incorporated different techniques into his paintings, and acquired a few wealthy patrons.
