I’ve always been obsessed with colors, especially green, because of the word “cha” in my name, which means “tea” in Chinese. I have a natural affinity to nature and its plethora of colors. Travel has always been a way to experience new colors, and also new sensations. When I recently traveled to Morocco, everything I knew before disappeared into the Sahara, and all became fresh in my eyes. Another time, I visited Haputale in Sri Lanka and saw a color green like I’ve never seen before.
The creation of artwork gives me the same feeling as my journeys that are full of surprises. In my design practice, I jump between the worlds of print, media, and 3D spaces to use all my senses to think and to connect with my work and people to tell a story. Design is about curiosity, storytelling, and truth.
