About me:

I currently teach at Lake Forest Academy as visual art and Mandarin Chinese instructor.

I was born and raised in China. After I graduated with an MA in Ceramics, I came to the U.S. to pursue an MFA in Drawing (2005–2008). I then worked as a teaching artist in Chicago area as well as a Mandarin Chinese instructor in a language institute. I quit the job and started working on my book project in 2012. Before I joined Lake Forest Academy in January 2015, I had published two illustrated books in MeimeiStory series and two workbooks.

Besides teaching and making art, I am currently working on a certificate with Global Competence certificate (GCC ) program, a graduate-level certificate program in global education for in-service educators.  I will be complete the program in May 2018.
