Art has always been in my blood. My multifaceted tendencies could be partly explained by my upbringing. I was born in Hong Kong, grew up in San Francisco/USA and Vancouver/Canada, and now live in Wiggensbach, a village in southern Germany.
In 2011 I found ceramics to be my medium and started a 3-year apprenticeship with a pottery shop in Germany. There I was first exposed to the power of patterns on pots (the shop has a series of dotted-patterned pots). During that time I was able to explore my creative ideas to my heart's content, something I am still doing today in the ceramic studio in Kempodium where I also teach ceramic courses for adults and children.
My fascination with henna began in 2016 when I got my first henna in India. To me it was like discovering the ultimate pattern form. It awoke a sleeping tiger inside me and sparked my interest as it was so similar to what I was already exploring in ceramics. I was so fascinated by it that I immediately decided to also become a mehndi artist and to combine those patterns with my ceramics.
