I'm really busy, ask my agent to check.
I was born and grew up in Hong Kong and have been drawing ever since I was able to pick up a pen. An early medieval archaeologist by training, I bring my love for the human past, cultures, and folklore to my art. My paintings are done mostly digitally, starting with a darker background colour and gradually adding light to it. However, I find that creativity comes more naturally to me when I have a pencil in hand, so I often sketch my concepts on paper first before turning to the computer. When I am not drawing or painting, I love reading fantasy novels, volunteering in museums, and drinking too much tea. I now live in Cambridge with my husband and our two affectionate cats Miso and MochiView Full Bio
