About

By Jae Tao is the art of story telling with a modern and whimsical view.

By Jae Tao is my altered ego, my creative escape. I find that no matter what I do or where I wandered, my heart goes back to designing, painting, and making things with my hands. Those are my passions and what keep me young at heart.
I started By Jae Tao with all of the fanciful folktales I heard and read as a little girl. My father is a great story teller. He used to tell my siblings and I, Hmong folktales. And, I would day dream about living inside of them and how I would defeat the monster or what I could've done to make a sad story end happily. Story telling is a huge part of the Hmong culture. We made story cloth tapestries as a way of preserving our history. Our traditional garments are decorated with embroidered flowers, animals, and etc. I want to continue that tradition with a modern and whimsical view.
