Artist Statement:

I am a first-generation Chinese American, a survivor of multigenerational trauma, a native to the American South, and currently a resident of New England. These experiences gave me an opportunity to have a unique perspective on what it means to be part of the Asian diaspora in America. In my work, materiality, text, Western and Chinese imagery and symbolism speak to my liminality of existing between cultures.  My explorations using artist’s books as a conceptual device reference Chinese and Asian American topics, including histories and narratives, legends and mythology, as well as culture and traditions, in order to bring visibility to the presence of this diasporic population in the United States.
