Illustrator. Storyteller. Book Maker.

Originally from China, I have always been inspired by silhouettes and movement. I am passionate about storytelling and working across different media including ink, watercolour, collage and a range of printmaking techniques.

Through my interest in themes related to humanity, particularly morality, criminality, mental health and art therapy, my practice aims to use my visual narrative as a therapeutic tool. They can not only guide children to better understand the world, but also prompt adults to reflect about themselves, bring hope and motivation to the society.
