I was born in Shanghai, spent my childhood in Canada, and currently tend a garden full of paper botanicals in California.

I started working with crepe paper in 2017. My work often combines different weights and colours of crepe paper over a wire, cotton or papier-mâché frame to build the beautiful flora that you see. Typically each item takes 15-20+ hours of work to complete in order to capture the details and realism you would see in the natural world. My goal is to capture some of the beauty of nature in paper and to encourage my viewer to stop and smell the roses.

Most recently, I was featured on VSCO Journal Paper Flowers and on Craft Industry Alliance's 11 Paper Artists Inspiring Us on Instagram.

Other places that have featured my artwork include Eat Sleep Draw, Creative Boom, Castle in the Air, and SF MOMA Submission Friday.
