"I enjoy the ‘hands on’ creative processes, as this way I feel complete and true to myself.  Most of my work begins with a vision or a memory, from music, to dance, to ceramics, or from naturally sourced objects, I love to collect every element as it touches my soul.  My cravings for perfection, something I cannot ever change, driving me forward, although it may be a tough journey."


Shadow 周影Indonesian-Chinese born, brought up in Hong Kong, studied dance in New York at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Centre, Music and Fine Art in Hong Kong.  She worked as a Radio DJ with The Radio Television Hong Kong, a Recording Artist with Polygram, and a TV presenter for TVB, MTV Asia, Channel V, Star TV and Time Warner CETV, for many years.
