She thinks that design is not only a profession but also a way of thinking that shapes her reality. To design is to liberate her soul and to motivate her to dive into the wild world in search of the never-ending visual and aural stimulation. Art and design, together accompanied with travelling as the by-product, have helped her interpret the world with different sets of acquired aesthetics. The magnificence of nature and the abundance of various cultures have inspired her to practice design as a way of celebration of life experience.
Currently working as a freelancer, she uses the freedom to experiment with different lifestyles by living among cities of Japan and China while having Toronto as the first base of operation.
