Part poet, part lollipop punk, and all woman. Grace Chia's postmodern, pop culture-influenced poetry merges themes of consumption, race, nationality, and sexuality with femininity.

Helping to fan the flames of her fiery imagination are female figures such as Sylvia Plath, Tori Amos, the late Bonny Hicks, Little Red Riding Hood, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Mother Nature, and Eve.

womango is about defining and redefining identity in a world of increasing multiplicity.
