About Me:

I am an artist,, mainly working with female imagery, paintings, mixed media and installation.

I am the Board President of AAWAA, Asian American Women Artists Association and have been in pharmaceutical sales for 25+ years.

Exhibit change by:

I work with surrealistic imagery to help envision a different way to look at life. Use of powerful colors, symbols and juxtaposed imagery seem to come together to evoke critical thinking of the viewers. I try to create with only aesthetics in mind and it is during the viewing of the piece that interpretations explain the meaning of the pieces.

I'm passionate about:

Women gaining self-confidence, unlearning passive agressive behaviors, learning courage and uncovering authenticity. Living our lives hearing and learning from our voices.
I would like to be able to inspire women who are victims of physical and verbal abuse and possibly human traffick victims.
