Artistic Journey

When I graduated college and moved to NYC, I set out looking for opportunities to assist or intern. I repeatedly ran into instances where I was told point blank that they wouldn’t hire me because I was a woman— whether it was because they expected heavy lifting, or had a ‘protective’ wife, or a myriad of other reasons. This is not to say that all successful male photographers had the goal of excluding women, but it seemed that the opportunities I sought were often met with substantial resistance.

For that reason I do my best to support women and minorities through my internship and assisting opportunities.

What Would You Tell Your Younger Self?

You can’t make everyone happy, so don’t try. Find people who support and understand you, rather than trying to create work or a life that makes others happy. 

This applies to photography, and truly to life in general.

Lotus Works gallery is an arts and community wellness space that I founded with my husband, Aaron.

For us, we just wanted to create community and connection with wellness. The space features yoga, Pilates, Art Gallery Exhibitions, workshops, and the Gyrotonic method.

Artistic Journey

Fashion has been a constant presence in my life from the very beginning. It all started when my mom and I moved to a new country, Vietnam left behind. My mom, in her search to secure a future for us, turned to fashion as a means of livelihood. Those early days were marked by crafting clothes not just as a choice, but as a necessity. 

Artistic Mission

It’s this belief I carry – that clothes can be a lot more than we give them credit for. They have this incredible power to empower, to shape someone’s confidence and outlook. I design for that woman who walks into a room and instantly captures attention, not just because of what she’s wearing, but because of how she carries herself.

Artistic Beginnings

it has been 25 years since I have been working professionally and it’s impossible to distill down. But I can tell you that some of the lows were as defining as the highs. Losing jobs because I wouldn’t change my name left as much of a mark on me as seeing my very first film in the theater. When I started out, people like me weren’t cast as the leads in mainstream film. When I look back at my film and TV work, I feel very proud at the broad range of characters and stories I was able to share. Most of my films were the first of their kind for the communities they were representing or the stories we were telling. I am most proud of the bold choices and indie grit behind all of the projects I was involved in.

(8×8 Photo Tiles by Printique)

Balancing family and work was very hard in the beginning of growing my business. I found it very hard to have a real life. I would spend long hours at the office and traveling. I cherished the time I had with my family, but to be honest, in those early years, I wasn’t as present to them as I am now. I persisted and my company grew. The gift of aging helped a lot. I now understand how to have more balance. I only wish I had learned this earlier.
