Quarter Life Quarantine, acrylic on canvas board, is a piece of static art that I created and inspired from a collection of “Covid-19 Confessions” submitted anonymously during the time of quarantine. It can be viewed as two people holding hands or one person washing their hands. It is truly a quarantine life crisis, to be washing your hands and longing for another person’s touch.


I identify as a Queer Asian Canadian performance artist, writer, and actor (she/her pronouns). I was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Canada at the tender age of one. Having roots stretched across by oceans, a lot of my work delves into the themes and comedies of identity, home, and belonging. I am a graduate of Humber College, and York University for Theatre Performance. I have worked with various theatre companies in the city, and continue to integrate different forms of art for the purpose of innovative storytelling. In my spare time, you can find me painting, embroidering, and knitting gifts for my friends and family. You can also find me working at your local Starbucks as a barista.
