Thank you to my family and friends who have encouraged me, to my teachers who have given me knowledge and inspiration to be a better artist, to my team and clients back in Hong Kong & China supporting me from afar. And to ALL OF YOU who have been following my journey. I am a very lucky person to have all of you in my life.”
