Download Resume

I'm a first generation Chinese American Artist, born in the Inland Empire, California. My parents immigrated from Singapore in the 80s, and I began pursuing art in college.

I've been working as a freelance 2D animator and illustrator for about 5 years, and in my free time I make oil paintings and animated films.

My work tends to be heavier in tone, and is often driven by observation of my environment and family history. In doing so, I hope to express the internal struggles of my characters' experiences, and find a sense of camaraderie through allegorizing similarities that resonate across generational gaps.
