A sense of place is my lifelong journey. I use art as a form of healing and activism. My block prints are auto-biological explorations of the complex intersections where my queer, FTM transgendered and Korean adoptee identities meet. Using photographs from various times in my life as inspiration, I re-tell my stories by combining intricate block prints with mixed mediums.
I am strongly rooted in queer people of color communities. In 2003 I co-founded the Queer People of Color Liberation Project (QPOC LP), a Seattle based multi-racial group of activists and artists dedicated to outreach, education and healing around racial and gender oppression. My involvement with this community has included organizing queer people of color healing retreats, artistic direction for the QPOC LP multi-media performance series, and performance art with Seattle’s only all-Asian-American drag troupe The Bamboo Clan. Currently living in Seattle, I am always eager to connect with artists, queer, people of color, and transnational adoptees.
