His art has been displayed in cultural exhibitions in the county and attracted many customers to buy from him, which remarkably strengthen his self-confidence. Recently, he began learning how to burn images onto wooden planks and paper.

In the future, he says he plans to teach more people who are curious about how to burn pictures on gourds to pass down the time-honored craft.
