She has also attended the Parsons School of Design and the Art Students’ League in New York. Clementine is a Clore Fellow in the UK and has been an artist-in-residence at the Korea National University of Arts.
Clementine has been actively exhibiting since 2002. She presented over 20 solo exhibitions in Hong Kong and also exhibited works in Florence, Chianciano Terme, Rome, Seoul and Taipei. She has published 4 illustration books in Asia on Bluey, a madcap character she created. Her solo exhibitions have been featured in the 2015 Festive Korea and the Le French May in both 2017 and 2018. In 2017, she debuted in art fairs in Europe, including Stockholm, Antwerp and London. Her work was also auctioned in the Renaissance Foundation Fundraising Dinner in the same year. She has been commissioned by South China Morning Post to decorate one of their new meeting rooms in their new headquarters at Times Square to be opened in Feb 2018.

Clementine believes in the power of colour and healing through art. Her works are often considered therapeutic. Her paintings carry a silent passion that speaks louder than words. With their fairytale-like quality, they create a dreamy, mysterious ambience accompanied by a sense of universal melancholia. Her works are collected by private collectors and institutions in Hong Kong, the U.S. and Europe.
