"Save me, from my shattered heart... I never expected returns… the scars are bleeding. They’ll probably never heal again. But life is about giving up, Making decisions, And doing what’s right. I do wonder, Would a cactus, still be. A cactus If it loses all of its spikes?" "Shattered Heart Teenage Angst" zine is inspired by my cliche teenage social media posts.

I work across mediums and specialize in illustration and comics. My work consists of many symbologies, inspired by the hazy style of the Chinese misty poetries. The subject of my art is usually myself, ranging from my stories, my emotions, to my identity and my culture.
