Ming was born in Boston in the Fall of 1984 to an Irish American sailor and a Chinese Canadian librarian. In the Fall of 1991 she saw a million ducks and predicted the Harry Potter franchise's formula for success with startling accuracy.
Her formative years were spent at the nation's oldest co-educational institution and oldest continuously running boarding school, with a brief layover in the People's Republic of China for some noodles. In 2007 she earned her BFA from Cornell University with a dual concentration in painting and drawing.
She is currently working on art all night and every day and would probably love an espresso.
