She is a linguistics graduate, poet, and visual and performance artist who has performed at the Singapore Biennale, the Singapore Writers Festival, SPEAK., and so on. She has also been featured in various print anthologies, such as Rollercoasters and Bedsheets, A Luxury We Must Afford and Inheritance | The Anthology. Her first title, GAZE BACK (Ethos Books, 2018), concerns itself with witchcraft and queer female bodies.
