i am a nyc based freelance manicurist & nail artist for editorial, advertising, commercial, tv/film, and consulting.
my art work is abstract and minimal, influenced by my chinese upbringing and artists such as carmen herrera (cuban-american abstract, minimalist painter) and jon setter (australian photographer known for his perspective and architecture).
before becoming a nail artist, i was a professional jewelry photographer and a hand model. creating art on hands came natural to me and fulfills my passion and creativity. i am the founder of torih studio where multi-media art+nail parties take place.
