I am a Chinese-German-Polish mixed media artist based in Calgary, Alberta. I have a BFA from the University of Lethbridge's New Media program. Moving back to Calgary upon graduation, this is where I continue to create artwork.

My illustrations delve deep into the dreamlike and the fantastical, with outsider themes of the misunderstood monster being a common thread within my work. A narrative usually arises, making my art accessible to the casual viewer but rewarding scrutiny and contemplation by revealing more about the piece. My illustrations mix ink and digital mediums, and as an animator, these illustrations are often given life within video. I have created artwork for a wide variety of projects including, album covers, gig posters, band merch, editorial illustrations, magazine covers, music festival promo material, film festival promo, theatre productions, public art installations and more.

I grew up watching cartoons and eating grilled cheese sandwiches, things I still enjoy to this day. Iím strongly influenced by music, and have had the opportunity to expand upon my love of music and animation within various music video projects. In past years videos I have been involved with have been nominated for awards including a Juno Award for Best Video of the Year, a Much Music Video Award nomination for Rock Music Video of the Year, and a Much Music Video Award nomination for Best Post-Production in a Video.
