Born in the suburbs of Beijing to a sporting family, Jingna moved to Singapore at the age of eight.
At 14, a mere nine months after picking up air rifle, she broke the national record and joined the national team.
Two years later, she left Raffles Girls' School to pursue a degree in fashion design, picking up the camera then, it eventually turned into her voice.
Jingna left school again in late 2007, and subsequently the national team, after her Commonwealth medals, to pursue photography full time.
Within a year, just upon turning 20, Jingna was approached to shoot for Mercedes Benz Taiwan by Ogilvy & Mather, and became a regular contributor to Harper's BAZAAR Singapore subsequently.
She went on to become the youngest recipient of Fellowship in the Master Photographers Association (UK) in 2009.
At only 24, her portfolio has expanded to include names like MontBlanc, Canon, Lancôme, Pond's, Wacom, Random House Publishing, as well as Elle and many other international publications.
The success of her work has brought her to shoot in Paris, London, and Tokyo, fashion capitals of the world.
In April 2010, in conjunction with the annual fashion festival and supported by Canon, 50 of Jingna's works were displayed in a large-scale street exhibition in Singapore's premium shopping district—Orchard Road. The exclusive showcase marked the first of its kind in Singapore.
Late May the same year, her second gallery solo show, "Angel Dreams", was held at Japan Creative Centre (Singapore). The show received the highest first-day traffic since the inauguration of the center, and saw the debut of her much anticipated private collaboration with Japanese musician SUGIZO (Luna Sea, X Japan).
With a painterly and fantastical touch to her work permeated by influences from the Pre-Raphaelites, Jingna's romantic, ethereal and sensuous images exude a quiet and steady confidence with maturity belying her age.
With her humble beginnings, Jingna believes that everyone should be allowed the chances and aspirations to chase their dreams.
She continues to share the stories of her journey via talks, the press, and social media with hopes to inspire.
Jingna is represented by Kramer+Kramer in the US and Europe, and Suzy Johnston + Associates in Canada.
