The Cantonese proverb “A ghost covers one’s eyes” (鬼揞眼 Gwai2 Ngam2 Ngaan5) means “To fail to see something.” There are things in life that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Sometimes’ we look at things differently than others. We fail to notice the truth because we are sometimes blinded by the things that we only want to see.

Identifying as neurodivergent, interdisciplinary, socially engaged British-Chinese educator, activist, a mother, as an artist using differing materials such as porcelain, metals, glass and paper. My work explores difference, isolation, belonging and inclusion and her practice facilitates conversations for people who sometimes find it hard to communicate. Stemming from my own personal experiences with my two sons, who are autistic with complex needs, I use art and activism to bridge these gaps and create a space that’s supportive and accessible.
