1) Sorry for not up-dating my site for a while… My schedule has been crazy. Right now, I am working with amazing fashion photographer Cleo Sullivan for the second time. M.A.C. Cosmetics promotional film directed by Cleo, set design by Yuko. For their new fall make up line.

2) Another school year has just ended at SVA, but this time, me as an instructor. On May 5, my senior students had open studios and it was so much fun. I cannot express in words how much I learnt from teaching them, and how much they encouraged me to keep going. Thank you guys. I will miss you all a lot!
