About Me

A young textile artist from Hong Kong who loves to travel, especially South East Asia.
My goal is to travel around Malaysia and capture the Heritage Art into my cyanotype art.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am learning more about myself through travelling.

As a young artist, I have low budget to spend during my trip, therefore I am seeking kind people to be my host.

Ironically, I can be very shy, but meeting strangers in here has been amazing and boost up my confidence !

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had an art exhibition in a forest in Malaysia in 2017.
I had to start hiking at 5am before sunrise and hang up my works before the visitors arrived.

Put my work down after 1pm and repeated again for the next day.... :D
