Hi Simon,

I'm Ginger. Liu is my last name.

I know DRKRM. They are one of my clients and I've exhibited my work there.

How are you on for Wednesday in Liverpool for a meet. I have to be at an exhibition with my sister at 6 pm. Any time late afternoon would be good. No worries if you can't.

Hi Simon,


Thanks for your email.

I'm all for putting in the work if you need me. I see at experience. I live in LA and I'm spending time in the UK to do a little work but mostly to be with family and intend to be back for long periods of time every year -preferably he summer. :) I'm hoping to be back in LA in the next few months but will be back in the UK again this year. I want to eventually start up my own gallery in LA and create more a photography scene there in the future years. I promote photo galleries there and in London as well as exhibit my own work. Your project sound big and exciting. Love to chat more in Liverpool soon.
