My work is a direct reflection and representation of myself and my life experiences growing up as Chinese American. Growing up I didn't see alot of representation of myself in the media. I never felt like I fitted in with my peers or my family. Through my designs I get to tell those narratives and be the representation I never had.
There is often so many polar opposite themes in my life growing up. As a Chinese American there are these completely polar opposite cultures that I grew up around. I draw alot from these polarites and combine both Eastern and Western cultures through my designs.
