This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography, at the suggestion of Jon Eoyang, is from the web site of the artist:

Peter was born Eoyang Hsun in Shanghai in the summer of 1923 as the first of four children of Eoyang Keh. He received his Christian name, Peter, and his artistic name, Yin Ye in China in the mid 1930s. Eoyang Yin Ye appears on many of his works as applied by a seal.

In 1937, he came to the United States with his mother, his brother and his two sisters. He attended military school in Indiana. He accepted an engineering job in Iran where he met his wife, Sally. She was English -- and working for the United Nations in Iran. They were married in England. Subsequently, the Eoyangs traveled to Chicago where Peter received a Civil Engineering degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology, and their only child, a son, was born.

In 1962 Peter and his family moved to Colorado. Shortly afterward his employer, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation sent him to Bangkok for two years. It was not until 1972, after Peter returned to Colorado and settled in Golden that he began to paint. He was a success, quickly completing "White Beauty" and other masterpieces.

His work has been exhibited at:
*Foothills Art Center, Golden, CO, 1973
*International House, Denver, CO, 1974
*Colorado State Fair, Pueblo, CO, 1974
*Rocky Mountain National, Golden, CO, 1975
*Gilpin County Annual Exhibition, Central City, CO, 1976
*Rocky Mountain National, Golden, CO, 1976
*Northern Colorado Invitational, Greeley, CO, 1976
*San Diego Watercolor Society's National Exhibition, San Diego, CA, 1977

Peter's work has also been exhibited at Golden Gallery, Golden, Gallery E, Evergreen and De Coloras Galley, Cherry Creek, all in Colorado.

In 1983, Peter moved to Eugene, Oregon, and in 1993 to Avalon California, continuing to paint watercolors at both places. He was the Catalina Island artist of the month in September 1994, and won a Catalina Artist Award at the Catalina Art Festival in 1994.

His painting "Deep Pit" dedicated as a memorial to Artist Sue Brown, (d.1995) placed 2nd in the Best of Show competition in the 1995 Catalina Festival, as reported in the "Catalina Islander" newspaper. Prints of the work were made the winter after it received the award. Limited edition prints of ten of his other works have also been made so that the hearts of more people will feel the vibrant lifting affects of his limitless spirit.
