She has started working as an independent artist during the Queen’s Pier and Star Ferry Pier Conservation Art Action.

Yim was mainly doing cultural, social and political related works in public spaces and social movements. More than social issues, she also worked on self-contemplation and existentialism, to present her thinking and reflection on life, existence, freedom, sadness, pain, gender, love, etc. Across various kinds of art media and work she presented, the public are more familiar with her social political (public) performance art and queer performance art.
