You were born in Vietnam and currently reside in Savannah, Georgia where you are finishing up classes at The Savannah College of Art & Design. What made you choose Savannah? What are your plans for after graduation?
"If Time Progresses Without Me" progress shotWhat's your earliest memory involving art or creating art?
It was a horrific drawing of my mom with the letter "w" forming the curvature of her boobs.
For those new to your work, can you give us a lil' background on where you are aiming to take your work and what you hope viewers gain from it?
I've always been particularly interested in therapeutic imagery. I think art can be used to better lives rather than pure aesthetic purposes. As a person and as an artist, being able to create something that can bring about well-being and contentment is all that matters. Life is stressful enough, so I guess you could say my work could serve as one of those Tempur-Pedic beds.
Are you reading anything right now?
Where the Wild Things Are. I'm very much looking forward to the movie adaptation.
Because I love the outdoors, I can't bare to spend my days inside unless I have to. Thus, my mind schemes the best around the early AMs. Coffee around 5pm, then work, bed at 4am, then a torturing wake-up for 8am classes.
