Shuyu Fang comes to DSI from Xiamen, a coastal city in Southeast China. Shuyu credits her artist parents for getting her into arts and crafts when she was young; in 2018, she received her Bachelor’s in Jewelry Design from the China Academy of Art. Currently, Shuyu is working with her father to design the interior decor of a children’s library in her neighborhood. Through DSI, Shuyu hopes to learn to incorporate art into communities and to inspire more people to learn and practice arts.
