I am a Chinese German Polish mixed media illustrator and animator currently based in Calgary, Alberta. I graduated with a BFA in New Media from the University of Lethbridge in 2007.
Drawing from skateboarding graphics, music, album covers, and Saturday morning cartoons, my art plays with these nostalgic elements to bring forward peculiar worlds.
Absurding the norm and introducing the weird into an environment, whether in illustration or live action animation, my work brings strange life to image. Creepy, playful, with elements of softness and manic absurdity, illustrations act as a window into a world with no explanation in which the characters inhabit.
Using self-contained narrative, these misfit inhabitants are embracing small moments of discovery and childish curiosity of exploration.  
I currently sit as a board member for Quickdraw Animation Society and am a full time freelance illustrator and animator. I have been featured as the cover artist of the Believer Magazine and was artistic lead for the 2018 Calgary Folk Fest. I also contributed animation and post-production for various Juno Award and Much Music Video Award nominated music videos.
