She is further holding a Master Degree in Social and Cultural Anthropology and a Bachelor Degree in Chinese Studies.

My work is about the process of painting itself. I am interested in how shapes and colors overlap, complement and replace each other. I work in Acrylics so I can apply layer upon layer melting together, changing constantly and tracing the disappeared. For me, painting is an exciting process, an interchange between creating new things and reintegrating existing elements.
