An American sculptor of Chinese descent, I am inspired by the art of ancient China and Japan.

With Asian features and formal poses, my figures are always elaborately clothed in garments replete with Asian patterns and motifs.  The style and color of the clothing has been greatly influenced by my previous career as a fashion designer.  The "textile-like" surfaces of my work are purposely distressed or "antiqued".  

My use of glass components for the hands, feet and heads of my figures imbues them with an almost intangible quality.  Together, these elements give the sculptures a haunting look, mirroring the paintings and sculptures of ancient China and Japan.

In the last few years, I began using semi-precious stones and crystals to reflect the opulence and pageantry of court life in ancient Asia. While still excited by the creative possibilities of combining glass with ceramics, I look forward to working in bronze the next frontier of my art.
