Sue-Yee Leung is primarily photographic, habitually crafty, and obsessed with oceans and the element of water. Her ideas about the mutability of identity, multi-layered cultures, gender, and sexuality inform her work, which in turn is imbued with a sense of humor. In Instant Connections (2011), a Polaroid group show at the Panopticon Gallery, Boston, MA, her work was exhibited along with portraits by dead luminary Andy Warhol, and her favorite not-dead photographers, Ellen Carey and Vik Muniz. 

Feeding exclusively on boundless gumption and sheer will, she loves attending Maker Faires and other craft venues across the US that feature tinkering with electronic bits and DIY technology. Magnetically drawn to collecting odd facts and peculiar trivia, Sue-Yee is fascinated with experimenting with self-sufficient, miniature natural cycles within an urban lifestyle, such as composting food scraps for indoor farming of food plants, and relocating moss from country to city. She is currently working on a tiny cityscape series. In addition, she is also a part of Zoa Chimerum Jewelry.
