"First time I saw a Miao lady with her elaborate silver headdress and beautifully embroidered clothing I was fascinated! Years later I have the chance to design my version of it, but on a Pucky baby" - Pucky
Pucky's new Pucky Baby is inspired by traditional Miao clothing and motif.
With a childhood divided between Hong Kong and Canada, Pucky grew up between two cultures, which prompted her to explore creatively the value of identity and the meaning of belonging. After graduation from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver in 2008, she returned to Hong Kong, where she works as a freelance artist and illustrator and created the brand "Pookie". Pucky's work is a combination of cute and dark, showing an integrated harmony where opposites like good and evil or love and fear, co-exist. She is deeply inspired by the wonders and mysteries of the world and her drawings are strongly affected by the beauty of their history, science and the romance. She draws to communicate these feelings in her own visual language.
