Born in Taipei, raised in Hong Kong, and has been residing in California since her late teen years, Cindy has been shaped by multiple and diverse cultural backgrounds that fuel her creative inspirations. Influenced by her father, an animator and a film maker, she has been exposed to a wide spectrum of art and design related fields and started drawing since an early age.

 

After graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles with her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fashion Design, she had been working as a full time apparel designer in multiple firms within California as well as Shanghai and Hangzhou, China for several years.  During the years of living and working in China, she had also begun traveling world wide extensively, which led to her realization of her need for autonomy with her creative paths.  Shortly after returning to California, she decided to take a bold risk of leaving her corporate career life behind to pursue her interest in textile design and has been working as an independent artist and designer ever since.

 

Her next venture is to further advance her passion as an artist and illustrator within the fashion industry, as well as a possibility of expanding into the realm of murals and public art.
