In 1952 Yuan settled on the Monterey Peninsula where for a brief period he taught Mandarin Chinese at the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio. He left the school in 1955 to paint full time. Inspiration came from his numerous trips to Europe which began in 1963, as well as two trips to Mexico while maintaining a home and studio in Carmel.
