Originally from Los Angeles, Quynbi is a Seattle-based aerialist, dancer, model, multimedia visual artist and licensed skydiver. She has performed for notable events such as the Moore Theater Centennial, the Seattle Art Museum Opening with UMO Ensemble, the Moisture Festival, and Circus of Dreams. Her distinctive aesthetic sense merges grace, beauty and strength with a dark edge. Her passion for the arts has been with her since childhood. She began dancing, modeling and acting at age 3, and has explored many forms of artistic expression. She has shown her paintings, collages and drawings in Los Angeles, New York, and Seattle. She was a tattoo artist for a year. She has been the front woman for two punk bands, The Parking Lots and Nylon Bitch, and an independent craft/fashion vendor for craft sales and boutiques across the country. She self-published an internationally distributed fanzine, The Social Loaf, in her teenage years. However, it is in her work as a performance artist that she feels she has found her true calling. Her latest adventure is exploring the world of skydiving. She currently holds an A license issued by the United States Parachute Association. Appropriately, she is pursuing the discipline of freestyle skydiving, which is a freefall dance starting 13,000 feet above ground, and shares many qualities with her work as an aerial silks artist. She has always dreamed of flying, and now she is learning how. Watch out for Quynbi as she soars to new heights! She can also be seen in live performance at the Moisture Festival.http://www.quyn.com
