She loves using a colorful cut paper style and incorporating Chinese characters into her work. She teaches schoolchildren origami at the Museum of Natural History. Huy studied at the School of Visual Arts and lives with her husband on the Upper West Side in New York City. Learn more about Huy at huyvounlee.com and connect with her @huyvounlee.
