Artist.

Educator.Person.

I am an artist, educator, and person. Through the lens of creativity and curiosity, I appreciate many things - from quiet shadows on a walk to wood carvings on architectural columns. I was born in Taiwan and moved to the United States with my family when I was two years old. The duality of cultures have shaped my approach to understanding art and life. 

 

I studied in New York and completed my MFA in drawing and painting from the New York Studio School. I returned to the Washington, D.C. area to share my passion and continue my studio practice. As an artist and educator, I have engaged in creative dialogue in many settings: museum, gallery, community center, and the classroom. I use acrylic paint to experiment with color and line.  Shape and form are combined to create unique imagery and deep space.

 

I am fortunate to have had many opportunities to facilitate learning and looking. We must remind one another to slow down and look closer - art is EVERYWHERE.
