Her first love is designing with colorwork, but she also enjoys designing with unique combinations of cables and lace. Born in Taipei, she moved with her family to San Francisco when she was 12. The experience of learning a new language and living in a new culture in a vibrant city built her deep curiosity. She studied art at University of California at Santa Cruz and later earned an MFA in painting at American University in Washington, DC. After moving to Lake Tahoe for snowboarding, she found a job teaching art at a local college; meanwhile, she started designing knit patterns. She brings a sense of adventure and artistic sensibility to her knitwear design.
