Searching for the perfect snacks to bury for winter.
Motivated by material exploration and curious about deep ecology, and I often find myself examining the fluid intersection of urban space and the natural environment.
I am the third daughter of four children to Chinese immigrant parents from Peru and Hong Kong. I am an artist, designer and gardener based in Vancouver, Canada and it is an honour and privilege to live and practice creatively on the unceded traditional territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
In my current works I focus on: reflecting on land use, experiencing cultural catharsis, looking more closely at waste, adhoc constructions, questioning the nature of labour, and envisioning a more livable and equitable future.
I work extensively with locally gathered plants, found ephemera, textiles, recycled or discarded things, and collaboration. I love that repurposing can be poetic. Concerned with sustainability, I aim to achieve work that is: compostable, recyclable, or made for dis/reassembly…and is ideally transportable by bike.
I graduated from Emily Carr University in 2016 with a BDes in Industrial Design and completed a Fine Arts Diploma from Langara College in 2013. Day to day I work as a certified horticultural technician.
