Second Year Master's Student @ Stanford.

My pronouns are she/her.

I create digital art for fun and for my theater!

I started learning art professionally since I was like 10, but I haven't been trained as rigorously for a long time so I am a bit rusty on things.

Apart from digital art, I sketch, watercolor when time allows, and do crafts. Knitting and finding traditional Chinese crafting techniques are also my go-to.


I am an alumna of DramaTech Theatre, where I have been an improvisor in its improv troupe Let's Try This!, a costumes designer, a prop designer, plus I served as its marketing director for one year. Here are a couple of improv shows I was in during the pandemic: Land Before Improv, The Witchhunt, Life, Improvised.


Thank You!
