Motivated bya love of its aesthetics and textiles, she specialized in studying Asian art. Today as an independent scholar she teaches courses in Asian art and textile history for SFU Continuing Studies, researches and writes about topics ranging from craft practice to Cantonese opera costumes, and makes the occasional indigo vat.
