Jimmy從小愛繪藝術,經父親一再打探託得介紹於70年代隨一代宗師劉偉棠老師習繪戲院廣告。由於當時香港社會艱苦,Jimmy是從學徒制出身,需留宿及由做雜務工作起,晚上與廣告板同睡。劉老師對Jimmy相當嚴勵,但嚴師出高徒,Jimmy不負劉老師一番栽培,在該行業中嶄露頭角。於80-90年代手繪電影廣告牌高鋒期製作一糸列經典作品。

Jimmy loved painting since from his childhood, his father tried hard to find an opportunity for him. Finally, in the 70's, he was admitted to be the apprentice under Master of cinema painting, Mr. Lau Wai Tong to learn how to paint the cinema billboard.  Due to the hardship in Hong Kong at the time, Jimmy was trained up from apprenticeship and needed to stay at the workshop 24/7 and required to do the chores, and at night time he slept besides the boards without a bed.  

 

Mr. Lau was very strict to Jimmy, but he was an outstanding apprentice, and to reciprocate the teaching of Mr. Lau. In the 80s and 90s, during the peak period of cinema business, Jimmy hand-painted produced a series of classic movie billboards.
