Painting was my first love; film photography is my new crush; and the art of documentation is a generational family practice. I take after my father who is chronically nostalgic and recorded every single moment of our childhood. 

I was born and raised in 台北, where I call home. I earned my BA in Fine Arts at Scripps College and my Masters in Art Education at RISD. I spent the last five years in Seattle working as a K-12 art educator, nurturing young and creative minds.

This year, I am embarking on an exciting new chapter of my journey as a full time toddler mama, who is also living her childhood dream of becoming a "real" working artist and small business owner.  

All this being said, what you really need to know about me is that sushi is my primary love language and the fastest way to my heart. 

Thank you for being here.
