Moh! Welcome to my corner of the internet. My name is Eileen. I'm unbearably weird, incredibly sentimental, and functionally depressed. Join me as the bullets of my thoughts and feelings ricochet between the logical and the nonsensical.
I'm the daughter of a Taiwanese father who graduated from both Taipei Municipal Jianguo High School and National Taiwan University, and then immigrated to America. If this means nothing to you, you're lucky. If you know what I'm talking about, then you'll also understand why I felt compelled to mention it. Something about having a statement repeated to you since birth just ingrains it into your brain, and I can't escape how much my upbringing has affected my creative process. That being said, I would be remiss not to proudly state that I am a Colorado native. I was born and raised in the restaurant business which just means I had a pretty unusual childhood. Imagine eating dinner around 11:00PM (I must hold some sort of record for the number of days I was late to class the next morning). I also need to give credit to my high school art teacher, Mr. Stallings. He was one of the best mentors I have ever had, and I owe him so much.
Now, without further ado. I present my art and my soul to you as I leave you with one of my favorite quotations taken from one of my favorite books.
"You have to be a bit of a liar to tell a story the right way. Too much truth confuses the facts. Too much honesty makes you sound insincere."
- Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind (Skarpi)
