Michelle has been an art educator for over two decades; her students range from toddlers to professional adults. She articulates her thoughts clearly and is able to explain abstract concepts.  She reads and writes English, Mandarin and Cantonese fluently. She will join NYU Shanghai faculty in spring 2019. In addition, she has lectured at post-secondary institutions such as Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Hong Kong University School of Professional and Continuing Education, and has previously taught at Singapore International School, the Harbour School, Independent Schools Foundation Academy and Nootka Elementary School (Vancouver, Canada.)

Her most recent exhibition “Polluta, Floating Artist Colony in the Sky” (2018) at Pro Arts Gallery, Oakland, California, USA, was the first by a Hong Kong artist and one of the most successful in the non-profit gallery’s forty-year history. Her award-winning book “Tin Hong Gaau Jyu” (Joint Publishing, 2017) uses marine plastic pollution as a platform to discuss human relationship with nature. Her work “Plastic, plastic, every where!” received the Grotto Award, Hong Kong Baptist University (2015) and Award of Excellence, Fourth Greater China Illustration Awards (2016.) Her most recent work Polluta, Floating Artist Colony in the Sky (2015) was part of juried international programme “City as Metaphors” hosted by Hong Kong Baptist University, Zurich University of the Arts and Hamburg City University. Her exhibition I Don’t Know if You Know How Much I Love You (2012) was the inaugural solo show at Hi Art, a gallery owned by Beijing art tycoon Wu Jing. She has participated in prestigious artist residencies including Banff Centre, Canada, Island Institute, Alaska and Art Omi, NY (recipient of the Cecily Brown Fellowship.) Her works have been featured in the media numerous times such as RTHK, Sing Tao Daily and Hong Kong Economics Times, and are in international private collections and as well as the Canada Council Art Bank.
