I am a Chinese-Canadian illustrator and concept artist with a passion for video games and game art. I love learning about history and often incorporate historical elements and themes into my designs. I primarily work with digital media to create vibrant, atmospheric illustrations with a painterly quality. In addition to painting, I enjoy using 3D modeling and sculpting to bring my drawings to life.

Steampunk Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

A collection of page, spread, and spot illustrations of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Step into a strange, new Wonderland with this steampunk rendition of iconic scenes in Lewis Carroll’s novel.


Sunder is an original game concept merging eldritch horror and the Lovecraftian Mythos, with Victorian England. Set in 1889, the game follows Madeline, as she uncovers answers to the strange happenings, monster sightings, and the recently recovered sacrificial artifacts.
