Despite a background in sociology and philosophy, her passion is in honing crafts across diverse mediums - be it illustration, writing, cooking, or styling.

She writes and translates bilingually, while practicing Chinese calligraphy in her spare time.

During her undergraduate days in Peking University, she travelled extensively in developing China. After four years in the wild, she ran back home to work on the conservation of Singapore’s built heritage. In the early mornings and late nights, you can find her writing in cafes or working booths.

She is also involved in freelance projects such as designing a card game for Play Nation, and a picture book series for a local makeup brush label, 13rushes. A proud parent of two pet rats, her ideal weekend comprises of drowning herself in an oversized sweater, aimless doodling, and watching YouTube videos.

A graduate in business administration from Singapore Management University, she double majored in Marketing plus Arts & Cultural Management. She has a strange fetish for squishy or watermelon things. She is enormously enamoured by sexy samba beats - but has a newfound love for groovy reggaeton after five fruitful months in Mexico.

SENG is an Associate Illustrator, who's been a competitive volleyball player for more than a decade. He is a full time student at Nanyang Technological University, studying Sports Science and Management. Although he can't decide if he loves art or sports more, he finds charcoal portraiture and documentary binges extremely therapeutic. Good puns, especially, are delightful to him. While he might sound like a handful, that is exactly what two hands are for.
