Wong has studied and worked in seven cities across North America, Europe, and Asia since her teens. Wong’s discipline was toned by her strong architectural background and her eccentric art projects inspired by her international life.
The breadth of Wong’s works include architectural design, painting & drawing, installation, performance, digital & hand cut collage, photography and sculpture. The expanding mediums are various yet the topic of body image and how it relates to contemporary society remains constant.
Wong’s works reveal her experience as a dancer, architectural designer and visual artist. Her unapologetic imagination and sensual concepts are infused with her romantic, poetic and kaleidoscopic aesthetic.

On the other side of your fear is your freedom.
