Xiaoou studied 3D Glass Design at Richmond Adult Community College, gaining her Higher National Diploma. She has been writing Chinese calligraphy since a young age and also likes to draw. A year taking a Post Graduate course in Art & Design at Central St Martin’s, London, further developed her passion for creativity.

Xiaoou uses natural forms, inspired by the natural wild freedom, its freshness, delicacy and strength to produce both functional and decorative work. Xiaoou’s work also aims to highlight common nature, its simplicity and its impact on our lives.
