Trained as a painter and immersed in Oriental arts, Ms. Shen is very much intrigued by metaphorical communication, which strongly influences her creation of both image and sound. Her works draw upon human nature and gravitate toward related subjects and characters.
Exhibitions of Ms. Shen’s works have received acclaim in cities including Bloomington (IN), Chicago, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Taipei, and Vancouver, among many others.
