About Me - Artist Statement and Bio

Artist Statement - Sculptures

Narrative art is art that tells stories; My narrative sculptures tell stories of lived moments. From food to social issues, inspirations abound. As an immigrant in the US who has studied linguistics, art history, and criminology, my art uses metaphors to respond to injustices and to explore the mundane, for example, bad governance and the penny I found in the parking lot. Transcending the limitation of words, the expressions in my three-dimensional work encompass humor, intellect, and a variety of emotions.






Artist Statement - Glass Art

I often thought about the meaning of being broken. Then, I came upon the epiphany that there is an upward reincarnation from brokenness. Consider the metaphors “breaking through” and “shattering the glass ceiling.” At every moment of shattered dreams throughout my life I embarked on a journey that was filled with beauty and betterment. Brokenness is essential for growth; and it is therefore beautiful.
