I specialize in Fine Art

I am in my final year at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California. I will be obtaining my bachelor's in Fine Arts.

As a method of retaining my childhood memories of Taiwan, I tell stories about my memories through my art. My work acts as an archive of memories. It preserves my pre-immigration memories and helps me construct new idealized ones — creations of imagined experiences. These idealized memories are based on what I think life may have been like had I stayed in Taiwan. These Memories, preserved or newly constructed, assume a physical form through a combination of found materials, paintings, and comic panels. My work uses a collage and storytelling approach that enacts memory construction; the very process of creating my art solidifies the memories and brings them into reality.
