I grew up in a family that had a lot of connections to art. My father is an art fanatic. He used to always enjoy drawing and collecting different artworks. I was an analytical child. I used to observe my father when he was making traditional Chinese painting. I would notice how happy it made him feel. Since I was an analytical child, I have a lot of wonderful memories of my father’s interactions with art. This made me interested in art. I think that’s where my passion for drawing came from.
I usually get inspiration from nature and literature as those things allow me to be amazed by every single detail in my life.Making illustrations makes me feel like I’m creating my own imaginative world out of real life objects, which also gives me a chance to share my own stories with others. I hope my artwork can give people a narrative and a bit of a surreal feeling.
I’m a graphic designer. Sometimes I think illustration is easier than design. But I think illustration is harder than design from time to time.
Graduated from Advertisement Design , Taipei Fu Hsin Arts School and get a Bachelor Degree in Fashion design, from Shih Chien University in Taiwan.In 2014,I got a Working Holiday Visa from German Authority and had an opportunity to learn about Tattoo Art. Afterwards, I am capable to apply skills onto different objects which I have learnt, such as Fashion Design, Commercial Design and the Art of Tattoo. In recent years, I have been made efforts on seeking movement between tattoo, art creation and self-development. Born and grow up in Taipei, Taiwan, Zee was verykeen to promote and discover Taiwan traditional culture, she also likes to take these traditional elements into art creation. Meanwhile, Zee is also influenced by sub- cultures, she expects to de- code relationship between traditional culture and sub- culture, and go further to form a self style.
I am from Taipei, Taiwan. My childhood was spent in a rural area, which gave me opportunities to interact with and led to my greater appreciation of nature.
During my childhood I had lots of free time, which I used to absorb many books. This aspect of the past is visible in my artwork, additionally also through daily life, in the way I interpret this world.
I often ponder about the origins of life in our universe, entrenched in the mysteries of quantum science and nature itself. These observations and ideas make themselves known through my artwork. I enjoy nature, thinking creatively and meditating.
I have a child with a disability, and he is the guide of my life. Even though he brings me both frustration and happiness, the values of compassion and love which he taught me are prominent in my artwork.
I have an art studio, where I work with children that I can liken to ripe fruits that nourish my artistic way of expressing my emotions and passion. These beautiful cumulative experiences present themselves throughout my life.
My work tries to illustrate life, without showing who lives it.
I hope to evoke sense of wonder and curiosity like I always had before about how everything come to be, and why. Questions like how someone’s life is inside a leaf, or tree, or rock. What kind of life would they have. How they survive; How they communicate. Questions that I ask a lot. Blue Tree let audience discover these fantasy life through a growing tree and a blooming town surrounding it. Through the lack of living creature in the work, I hope to evoke audience’s imagination about life.
