    “我在生活中是一个非常内向,非常不愿意向别人展示自己情绪的人,我甚至有一些讨好型人格,但是我非常相信图像的力量。

    我最喜欢的电影之一是杨德昌的《一一》,里面的小男孩以摄影的方式记录了好多人的后脑勺,他说,“我要告诉人们他们不知道的东西,给他们看他们看不到的东西。”
              
     
    -Jyni Ong, Staff writter, It’s Nice That
    “Scenes of contemplation are rife in Vanilla’s work. She aims to strike a delicate balance between tones of straightforwardness and ambiguity.”

    -Kiblind Magazine, France
    “Ornamental patterns, Chinese folk elements, colors as pastel as candy: this is the trio of shock that immediately differentiates the beautiful illustrations of Vanilla Chi from those of ordinary people.”

                                               -Ground Ooh Arts
    “在作品创作中,这位敏感少女善于以自己本体去滋养艺术,将生命中的点滴历程融入画面,带来令人动容的美丽。作品之外,她的表达又非常丰满,你绝不会感到一丝丝的枯燥和乏味,而是被真诚的文字所打动,只想更深的与这个有趣的灵魂对话。Vanilla Chi 似一本珍宝书籍,值得你细细品味,慢慢欣赏。”
