Phoebe is a studio woodworker from San Francisco, CA, currently based in Evanston, IL, who makes site-specific sculpture using traditional furnituremaking techniques. She was born in Lompoc, CA, to Taiwanese-American mathematicians, and grew up navigating hybrid identities, which she continues to explore as a queer artist of color.
Her work has been shown at Chautauqua Institute, New York; FLXST Contemporary, Chicago, Illinois; Wasserman Projects, Detroit, Michigan; Haystack Center for Community Programs, Deer Isle, Maine; Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Gatlinburg, Tennessee; and ICFF, New York, New York. She has been awarded residencies through ACRE Projects, Field/Work at Chicago Artists Coalition, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts; as a craft researcher, she jointly received an Exhibition Research Grant from the Center for Craft in Asheville, NC, for a collaborative book project on women in woodworking.
For a decade she consulted as a design ethnographer for Fortune 500 companies, and has conducted research in China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Turkey, the UK, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, and the United States. She has taught graduate research techniques at Stanford University, and woodworking courses in San Francisco and Detroit.
She received her MFA in Design from Cranbrook Academy of Art, a certificate in Fine Woodworking from The Krenov School, and her BS in Product Design from Stanford University.
