About the artist and work

British Born Chinese illustrator based in Birmingham. My visual language is inspired by my experiences of growing up in Hong Kong and the UK. I enjoy illustrating topics such as cultural identity, diversity, mental health, and wellbeing.

This piece celebrates Pak Ming Cantonese Opera, a group that my Grandfather is a part of. When I was younger, I remember being amazed by the performances, the lights, the music, and the joy I felt being able to watch them do what they love. I have fond memories of hearing my grandfather singing and practicing in his room for shows. The creativity in the ornate and intricate costumes, the beautiful and bold makeup, and the vivid colours are some of my favourite aspects of their performances.
