The Gallery says Duong went to art school at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she continued to explore and create. “I have a deep love for nature, adventure, exploration, and working with my hands. These things influence me in everything that I do. Textures and using different processes entertain me. People entertain me. The world entertains me. I entertain myself. Cheers to yesterday, today, and tomorrow!” said Duong.
