Hey there! 

I’m a Taiwanese American designer and illustrator. I make colorful designs and quirky, dreamy illustrations.

A childhood love for storytelling lead to an Art Practice and Media Studies B.A. from UC Berkeley. I’m in the process of navigating how storytelling, design, and education can come together.

My experiences include: installations, digital and print design, children’s illustration, story writing, and building curriculum. I also drink a lot of tea and watch a lot of movies.

Previously at Chronicle Books; Currently at Literati.
