I am a multimedia, visual and occasionally performing artist. I also write and teach.
My work is about perception, intimacy, fear, love and disruption.
In my installation work, I create a spaces of tactile and emotional playfulness. I work in collaboration, across art forms and between cultures.
I've lived and worked in Hong Kong since 2002.
My recent work is with literal and non-literal embroidery and mending.
