“My career as a court interpreter and my career as an artist are intimately linked; they both complement and strengthen each other as I explore memory, text, and narrative. I have not only challenged myself to create work that is both incisive and meaningful but also share that work with others through exhibitions, screenings, curatorial projects, and digital media.”
