Statement

Growing up in a transracial adoptive family, my identity was not something I was comfortable sharing. Being a Chinese girl in a Caucasian family, it was difficult to blend in. As I am getting older, I appreciate the uniqueness of my life and the support that is all around me. Although societal norms dictate what belongs and what does not, my artwork celebrates the differences that exist in today’s world. My goal is to spread empathy, inclusion, and awareness on relevant issues. Through my work, I hope to empower others to accept themselves and to learn to have empathy for others.

Honors Capstone Project

According to BBC, uncontrollable bush fires left Kangaroo Island, an island south of Australia, with over 800 miles of scorched land. The bush fires did not only have a detrimental impact on the island, but also the island’s unique wildlife. Since September 2019, thousands of animals perished an in particular, the South Australian subspecies of the glossy black-cockatoos continue to fight for survival. This capstone project is an educational interactive book consisting of seven two-page spreads that focus on the South Australian subspecies. The book includes scanimations and mechanical tabs.
