Carol HO was born in Hong Kong and emigrated to Canada with her family in 1991. She studied at the University of Calgary, majored in drawing, painting and printmaking, and received her Bachelor degree in Fine Arts in 1999.

The sources of her works range from pictures in fashion magazines and cookbooks, graphic design to Japanese manga. Instead of making an accurate reproduction of those visual materials, she is more interested in fusing and re-arranging various patterns, lines and shapes in her own style, showing viewers a rich plural mixture of pictorial structure on paper and canvas. The images in HO’s works are confusing or disturbing somehow, which she has chosen deliberately to provoke and manipulate the viewers in their reading of her works.
