Usually October brings up the notion of changing leaves, pumpkins, apple cider, pie, costumes and of course the Texas State Fair.

However my October is mostly consumed with thoughts rooted in celebrating the birthday and rotations around the sun of my true love, cuddle partner and future husband, Dylan.

There is absolutely nothing else that matters but finding yourself that one person who challenges everything about you in the most beautiful way, and taking some rad photos of them from time to time too.

He selfishly allows me to have the freedom to create 90% of the year and whole-heartedly dream big, and I could not be more thankful for that.

Of course I had to go ahead and create a 100 page killer book that documents his life and the adventures we have been on together, and I am excited to share some of the graphic elements I designed for this.

We have already had many incredible soul-searching, gut-wrenching journey’s together, learning important lessons about life and love along the way, all while singing at the top of our lungs, and I can not wait to continue exploring this most-loved vagabond life we have created for ourselves.

Smoke Your Heart Out

Posted on October 5, 2016
It’s like a scene from an old movie – it’s an all time perfect day in the woods, feeling like the only
ones left on the planet, and truly in tune with all its beauty.
Cotton candy colored skies and lapping clouds the color of
your favorite faded vintage pieces…dip your toes in the grain of the film and let your
hair transform into it’s own dewey, lovely mess.

Rejoicing in my painted intergalactic landscape!

Printed from 35mm film, painted with acrylic mixed with water, and left to dry with mesmerizing results.

Create more everyone. Knowing you can transform things into another realm is an incredible feeling.

To mark this special occasion I designed and published a book that hopefully he will love as much as I do because it truly came out better than I expected!

Below are some of the illustrations I created for the book.

For the past few years, I have been designing posters for the American Chamber Ensemble in New York.

They have been trying to widen their audience to a younger demographic and bring chamber music back into a new light.

They mostly perform at Hofstra University, where some of the players are professors there, but they also

have wonderful concerts at Carnegie Hall every year and their programs are always interesting for music lovers of all kinds.

As a frequent audience member, I have seen their audience grow and grow in size and ages since they adopted this new look.

Chamber music couldn’t be cooler! Give them a listen and you will see what I mean.


Below are some of my poster designs that have flanked the walls of Hofstra and Carnegie Hall alike.

My sister and I have unique relationship.

We are connected at the hip.

We love each other.

We piss each other off.

We create harmoniously.

Together, we are magic.


This year, I designed and published a book for and about my sister for her birthday.

It came out more amazing than I could have ever imagined.

Below are some of the illustrations and art I created for the book.

And so although life moves on

and we have lost something so special,

we have to honor those that save us.

They had a lot to say and they

need us to keep saying it.

– Marilyn Chin


My work is a constant search to express and represent my emotions.

Sometimes I am afraid of losing parts of my life. Sometimes it hits me like a brick wall, so I gather up the courage to create something that speaks from the source.

Mostly, these thoughts revolve around my ancestors and how my evolution sometimes becomes a map of their existence, and the of common synchronicities we share.

Because of this voice that I have come to gather and nurture, sometimes I am afraid of what to come, and what I can pass on.





I chose to embroider these images because I am truly inspired by the people in them; My grandparents. My soul mates.

The ones who taught me what passion and self expression could accomplish on every level.

For me, embroidering has this ability to change a picture and merge it into a different time space.

By giving these images a new aesthetic, its my way of telling a bigger story.
