Biography from Alta Galleria:
Ang Tsherin Sherpa was born in 1968 in Kathmandu, Nepal.  He started studying thangka painting at the age of twelve under the skillful guidance of his father, Master Urgen Dorje, a renowned thangka artist from Ngyalam, Tibet. 

After six years of intense formal training, Tsherin went to Taiwan to study Mandarin and computer science.  Three years later, he returned to Nepal and resumed working with his father in numerous projects that included painting thangkas and monastery murals.

Tsherin came to the US in 1998 and worked as a thangka artist and as an instructor at The Healing Buddha Center in California.  Presently, he lives in Oakland, California where he continues to paint thangkas and to offer classes in thangka painting.
