Carmen was born in Hong Kong, a bustling city infused with both traditional Chinese and modern Western influences. At 17 with two suitcases in town she started a new chapter in her life when she travelled to Canada to continue her high school and then her university education. She was thrilled to meet lots of new friends and to explore the different arts and cultures of this new country.
She has formal training in ceramic sculpture and dinnerware design. Through
experimentation and her professional work, Carmen has gained extensive knowledge in graphic design and illustration.
Carmen loves cats, dogs, coffee, and pastries. She has endless curiosity and energy to learn, to acquire new life experience and knowledge. Exploring the city, bookstores and libraries are a few of her favourite activities.
