As an artist working mainly with porcelain, resin and embroidery, I strive to explore, redefine and externalize femininity and “femaleness”. With highly detailed and intricate techniques, I endeavor to show the complicated tableaux with aggressiveness, gentleness, fragility, softness, toughness, struggles, emotions and pain within femininity and female gender in delicate and cryptic looks. I stay loyal to the creed that art should be an organic combination abundant with personal metaphors and symbols; art is about experience rather than conversation. If there is a story with an open ending, there should be art totally open to interpretations and feelings.

I also make traditional Chinese Chanhua缠花 (thread- wrapped flowers). It is an Chinese craft art of wrapping silk threads onto paper cuts; it originated in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and thrived during Qing Dynasty (1644 to 1912), combining multiple art forms including sculpture, embroidery, and paper cutting. Chanhua has been designated as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of China.
