“I am a cut paper artist based in Los Angeles, California, USA. Born (1969) in Hong Kong and practicing Chinese calligraphy since the age of ten, I studied painting and drawing in my formative years and completed my BA degree in Fine Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
In 1993, I came to the United States as a painter and earned my first Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley. Subsequently, I earned a second MFA in computer graphics and interactive media at Pratt Institute in New York. In 2000, I relocated to Pittsburgh where I created my first cut paper work in summer 2005.
Over a dozen books featuring my cut paper include Alchemy (Sandu, Beijing); Paper Art Now! (Monsa, Barcelona); Paper Secret I&II (Hightone, Guangzhou); Paper Play (Sandu, Guangzhou); Freehand (Chronicle Book, San Francisco); 500 Paper Objects (Lark Crafts, Asheville); Art of Paper (Monsa, Barcelona); Paradise of Paper Art (Designerbooks, Beijing); Material World (Virgin Books, London); Paper Works (Sandu, Guangzhou); Push Paper (Lark Books, New York); l’art de la decoupe (Editions Alternatives, Paris); The New Encyclopedia of Origami and Papercraft Techniques (Quarto, London); and High Touch, Illusive 3, Papercraft 2, and Papercraft (Gestalten, Berlin).
