生於80年代香港, 媒體藝術畢業, 現職產品及平面設計師, 卻幻想活於20-21世紀瑞典郊區.自小熱愛創作, 偏好布藝飾物手工作業, 常遊走於SSP. 致力自學手藝(如:車縫,手縫, 針刺, 手繪等), 開發創意, 製作手製品給朋友. 一直夢想有自己的dream shop, 希望將作品背後的心思與喜樂散落於你們心中.最近終於發佈了第一個手作網頁 www.libbylasoup.com, 及寄賣作品於中環小店.
因為設計能改變人的思維及行為, 而自身是個表達派而又擁有豐富想像力的人, 很容易地滿腦子ideas, 繼而跟設計工作一拍即合.
Cute, funny, 有時想型, 但只能扮型, 親和, 或許會帶點日本的味道.
任何事物,任何時候.但相信突然爆出來的機會不高, 多數隨年月由雜誌, 展覽, 電影, 旅遊, 網站等等累積而來.
日本昭和時代風格, 簡約自然主義, 歐洲田園風等等.
Shinzi Katoh, 其創作風格與意念簡直跟我不謀而合, 非常欣賞其設計, 永遠帶著童真, 愉快, 簡約而舒適的感覺. 並希望透過作品讓人呼吸到舒適空氣 找到悠然的快樂.
沒有特定, 但會留意何時舉辦art 有關的exhibition.
這是一個比較柔和的手法去表達禁煙的message. 因為人所共知吸煙不但毒害自己及他人健康, 更會污染地球, 影響整個生態環境. 故此,煙表達成斷為兩半, 可換發樹林生長. 而七彩繽紛的鳥兒代表牠們重拾棲息之所, 悠然自在地飛翔, 鳥語花香的環境是人所嚮往.
小時候常唱twinkle twinkle little star, 但我們可曾真的想過”how I wonder what you are”.這個創作是我對little star的狂想, 月蝕之時, 其實正是小星星在一閃一閃的吃掉月亮. 而月球上凹凸不平的表面, 也是星星所造成…. 月球是什麼味道? 觀乎星星吃得津津有味, 裡面可能有朱古力夾心, 應該還不錯!
因為Dookaz有新鮮感, 裡面的作品多元化, 網頁宗旨正面樂觀, 希望在這裡發表作品有更多人認識.
積極進取的網站, 推動本地設計文化不遺餘力, 以行動支持各大機構, 愛心爆棚!

1. What are your current occupation and state of mind?
Born in the 80’s in Hong Kong, Media Art graduate, current position as Product and Graphic Designer, but my dream is to live in 20-21 century at Sweden suburb. With deep love for creation since very young, I like handmade cloth decorations by my own and walk a lot along SSP. Devoted myself to independently study the craftsmanship (for example: machine sewing, hand sewing, acupuncture, hand-painting and so on), development of creativity and handmade gifts for my friends, I had always been dreaming about my own fancy shop, hoping to express thoughts and happiness behind every creation to your hearts. Recently I finally launched my first handmade product homepage—-www.libbylasoup.com, and started consignment at a small store in Central.
2. Why do you like design?
Because I think design can change one’s thought and behavior. As one person like to express and who are rich in imagination, I am easily to full my brain of ideas, and subsequently fit them in the design work.
3. How would you describe your style of art?
Cute, funny, sometimes I wish it stylish, but only can make it seems cool, kind, perhaps with a little Japanese style.
4. Where did you get your inspiration for your design?
Anything, yes, in anytime. But I believe the opportunity of sudden blows is not high. So I guess mostly from years’ accumulation of magazines, exhibitions, movies, traveling, and websites and so on.
5. What cultural influences have influenced your style and subject matter?
Japanese Showa Time style, Simple Naturalism, European Country style and so on.
6. Who is your favorite artist of all time and why?
Shinzi Katoh, whose creation style and thought incredibly hold the same view with mine, I appreciate his design very much. It always brings innocent, happy, simple, and comfortable feelings, and let people breathe freely with the real joy.
7. What kind of design website do you often visit?
No particular ones. But I do pay attention to exhibitions regarding art.
8. Tell us about the design process for your picked design? How did you get the
inspiration? What to express?
This is quite a gentle way to express No Smoking message. As known to all, smoking do not only harm to oneself, but also to health of other people. It will even cause Earth pollution and affect the entire ecological environment. Therefore, to break the cigarette into two pieces and let the tree grow, and let the colourful birds perch their home again and soars comfortably. The beautiful environment with birds singing and flowers giving out fragrance is where people yearn for.
In childhood we often sang ‘twinkle twinkle little star’, but have we ever thought about “how I wonder what you are”? This design is my fantasy for the little star. When it comes lunar eclipse, it is actually the little stars precisely and shiningly eat the Moon. But the uneven surface of Moon is also caused by stars…..What flavour is the Moon? It seems the star is easing with gusto, possibly has the chocolate contained inside, should be also good!
9. Why choose Dookaz as the platform to publish your design?
Because Dookaz is fresh, with multiple artworks, and the website aims to spread positive and optimistic messages. I hope more people will get known to me through my submissions at Dookaz.
10. How do you comment on Dookaz.com?
Very positive and enterprising website, with ultimate devotion to promote local design culture, supports big organizations with actions, and full of compassion!
