SMILE
Vinyl installation in the U of M restroom mirrors
Spring 2014

How many seconds, minutes, hours do we spend looking in the mirror to enhance, improve, correct our perspective of beauty? Are we even aware of the time we spend looking at ourselves, inspecting our flaws, emphasizing our “good side”, criticizing our image?

Let’s lay back a bit. Have fun. Be silly.

Installation done with the awesome Monique (@tijolinho)



ScenicPatriotic, Spring 2014Acrylic ink, screenprint4x6”
Resembling the United States flag, Patriotic tells the story of the Secret War, where the Hmong families residing in Laos aided the U.S CIA during the Vietnam War. When the U.S pulled out, the Hmong had to flee across the country, hiding in the thick jungles, dodge flying bullets, swim through the Mekong River, live in Thailand’s refugee camps, and fly to America to be known as the refugees from the Vietnam War.

Sorry for the lack of posts! I’ve been busy with this new amazing internship I’ve gotten over the summer! This is one of the outcomes from my internship: Harry Potter from colored construction paper made by me! :D the design & illustration is all crafted by me and, of course, the character rightfully belongs to J.K Rowling. :) This shall be hanged in the children’s library of the school I’m working at. The school is the best!!! :) can’t wait to hang these up!
