Each painting tells a glimpse of my journey. Telling stories is a way that we process, heal and grow.
I was born in Indonesia and grew up exploring the crowded city of Jakarta, the back woods of Java island, and later the contrastingly fresh air of Seattle. As a minority kid, I was ethnically Chinese and the majority was not. The kids in my neighborhood constantly bullied and made fun of me. That's when I ran to my paintings. Painting helped me cope with the mean-spirited world around me. Now, my art making is a lifelong study in finding my voice.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pasadena Art Center College of Design. I now work and live in Seattle, Washington. In addition to numerous private collections in both the United States, Australia, and Asia, my paintings and digital murals can be seen in various locations of the Amazon.com headquarters in Seattle's South Lake Union campus.
