I am a visual artist with a diverse practice including drawing, painting, clay, mixed media sculpture, Installation, social practice and performance. I am interested in the ways that collective memory, perception, and identity are formed through shared events, ritual, and ceremony. Using personal experiences and traditions of Asian, Asian-American, and Indigenous cultures as inspiration, I create participatory installations, sculptural objects and two dimensional works that aim to facilitate reflection and social interaction. Among the goals for my work are to emphasize interconnectedness and to commemorate the beauty of collaborative efforts.
