About me

I  grew up in Oakland where I earned a BFA at CCAC, later an MA in Art Education. I've taught art to kids for many years, now I'm in my studio, working with adult artists at NIAD(niadart.org), or teaching workshops.


My first picture book, 'Chinese and English Nursery Rhymes: Stories to Share and Sing' (Tuttle. 2010) won 'Best Books of the Year' from the Chinese American Library Association award , a new edition published in 2018.  I sell my paintings, prints, greeting cards, scarves and tea towels on Etsy, and at craft/art sales and shops. My work is in private collections and two hospitals: Sutter (Van Ness campus, Stanford Pediatric floor, SF) and Kaiser (Pediatric Behavioral Health, Petaluma, CA). One of my prints is on TV! (Council of Dads, NBC. Look for a ladder reaching up into the clouds.)
