I’m an author, artist entrepreneur, and screenwriter based in the Netherlands. Determined dreamer. Human. Being.

Born and brought up in China, I came to Europe in the 1990’s to study at the University of London. Then I read Japanese Language and Culture at the University of Leiden, The Netherlands, and Tokyo, Japan. I have done some pretentious crap in my life.  Take a look further if you are interested. 

For me as a random artist, space is a metaphysical arena of continually intermittent appearances and disappearances. Random because I believe art is a random act of kindness – and I have something to say, sometimes.  For an impression of my visual artworks as well as my performances, you can visit galleries here.

As a screenwriter, I have participated in various European television and film projects. Currently I’m working with  Macau-based MaisOriente film productions on a slate of feature films, TV series and stories for online applications. More soon!

As journalist, I inquire into a range of noteworthy topics on contemporary China from an insider perspective. In 2008 during Beijing Olympic Games, I presented a 5-episode talk show TV China for Nederlands’ national broadcaster and explored China’s media landscape with experts and media stars from China and the Netherlands. 

From 2013-2016 I was the Editor-in-Chief of the English/Chinese bilingual luxury magazine XiN 新 focusing on today’s China shaped by consumerism.  I contributed a weekly column to Hoje Macau on contemporary Chinese art and culture (translated from English).

Butterfly, a novel is a historic crime-love story set in the Second World War (1937-1945), “a shamelessly original piece of art that can be read legally outside China”. Hell yeah! You can watch booktrailer here. I publish in English, Dutch, and Chinese. My fiction, essays and poetry have featured in a wide variety of magazines and anthologies worldwide.

Since May 2016 I has been collaborating with Flemish photographer Filip Naudts on an on-going performance art project The Picture of Dorya Glenn. For the eponymous photo novel, the artist duo worked with a semi-transparent burqa, in which I posed nude in front of the camera
