I grew up in Hong Kong and have lived in different places before settling into my studio in the heart of Brooklyn. Before arriving in New York, I traveled and studied on the pacific island of Guam. Later, I spent my time in both the United States and Europe. My exposure to western Arts continues to influence my painting style, however my painting philosophy remains tied closely to her Chinese background.
My work includes drawing, painting and photography. Portrait, figures and architecture are my main subjects through out my creative process. They are the constant changing landscape in my creation.
Drawing is a tool to realize the senses of space and form. It locates the root of my thoughts. Line drawing, in particular, allows me to expand my thoughts in an “unbound” surface. My latest experiment is line drawing in digital formats. I explore how we may combine traditional techniques, like hand drawing, with new technology. These line drawings, while produced in computer programs, approximate the feelings of etching and try to achieve the quality of prints. My recent art project is several series of Back to Basic: Drawing The Changing Space. The works titled "Journey" and "Creature" are done by drawing in Photoshop. Each series consists 16-28 sketches and they are constantly changing their negative and positive space. I like to use this processing format to explore the changing space in the visual and the process creates some sort of story telling.
