Hi, I’m Mimi Leung. I love creating and experience a delirious joy when I’m making things.

It’s a hard feeling to share in person so I try to capture it in my work.

I’d rather add to the awesomeness of life than to the misery.

So I try to make light of darkness with my imagination and a sense of humour.
