Her artworks express her purest emotions through the twisting of hair which examines the emotional links between people.

Her work “Eudaemonia” was showcased in Hong Kong at gallery Grotto Fine Art and Art Basel – Hong Kong in 2017.
The painting is about the white ducks I saw in a park when I was studying in Beijing with reference to Japanese painting techniques with which the water flow is in blue and golden lines to contrast with the white of the ducks.
