An ex-writer of fashion magazine, her passion for traveling and free spirit meant she wasn’t desk-bound for long and went to New Zealand for a working holiday. Upon returning home, she became a full time editor for various fashion, health, beauty, and travel magazines. One thing led to another, she ended up cycling across Switzerland and that was when she decided to bring the various sights, architectural landscapes and cultures she saw to life by illustrating them onto postcards.
She soon merged her individuality and lifestyle together to create her own virtual character – Mogu. The girl with a large mushroom atop her head is in fact a representation of her younger self. In addition to the character narrating her life story, Mogu is also the protagonist in Khang Nee’s illustrated travel book 除了旅行不懂要干嘛 and 我又去旅行了 published in 2017 and 2019. Crossing the border from a writer to an artist, the change has reminded herself that as long as we are willing to take the first step forward, no matter how great our dreams are, it is just a stone’s throw away.
