Hello everyone!!! My name is Yen, and I am a huge ocean enthusiast!! I spend most of my free time scuba and freediving in Monterey, as well as all over the world. The ocean is where I find complete freedom and happiness, and where my imagination explodes from all the incredible creatures I find!! From jellyfish, to octopus, to nudibranchs, I find beauty and complete utter awe in all of it and find ways to translate my respect as well as weirdness onto the canvas!! I hope you like my art!!
