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.
