Magdalene prefer to call herself as a "work-in-progress" interdisciplinary artist. She is constantly seeking the definition of beauty in design, and in life... After reading Jasper Morrison & Naoto Fuwasaka's Super Normal, it set her a fundamental belief: To observe beauty not from social normalities, but, through the ordinaries via everyday objects, moments and events. To rediscover the values of our needs, and unseen emotions we have long overlooked in this rapidly changing world.
These continue to inform her work to express via different mediums. For instance, tattooing has truly opened up her mind and allows her to open up conversation with wider audiences about their thoughts.
She enjoys capturing intangible emotions. As a creator herself, she wish to invite viewers to read her work in their own perceptions.
Origin from Hong Kong, Magdalene moved to the UK in 2012 to pursue GCSE & BTEC Art & Design studies. Later gained a BA in Graphic Communication Design from Central Saint Martins in 2019. Now based in London for new adventures.
