"Seexeng has a good sense of humor and is a joyful, thoughtful person who takes responsibilities seriously and involves all students in being successful in their educational pursuits. I have also observed him in collegial conversations with persons from many different countries. He is at ease in presenting himself in a non-threatening and caring manner. He is a strong team member who builds sound working relationships and does all parts of projects from inception to completion, no matter how involved or tedious."

July 1st and 3rd, 2010. There is no denying the fact that I along with many of my fellow Hmong mourn the loss of a courageous and resilient warrior who at times has shown to all of us that he too is subject to human frailties. His death represents an end of an era for Hmong in America. There will be no other like General Vang Pao. His courage in battle will be missed; his legacy of the war years will be honored by his compatriots and his time in Laos and in America will be studied by scholars and long remembered.
18"x24", acrylic on canvas with 24kt gold, silver and copper highlights. 2005. The Hmong Paj Ntaub exists in two styles. The oldest form is the the "flower cloth" Paj Ntaub. The newest form, which first appeared in the Thailand refugee camps in the 1970's, is the "story cloth" Paj Ntaub.The Paj Ntaub is viewed worldwide, as art form perhaps unique to the Hmong. The skill necessary to create both the old, and more recent, art form, take years to master. These skills traditionally have been passed from mother to daughter, often from an early age when the child is first able to hold a needle.
This painting was inspired by, and created, to honor Hmong women and their dedication, devotion and commitment to preserving the literal and figurative, fabric of Hmong life.
