Thank you for visiting!


The theme of my artwork is “childhood.” I want to be proud of my 12 year-old self who has always dreamt that I will be a great person. My passion always starts from her. My process begins with digging into my memories through drawing. Thoughts come first, then I start to think about how to actualize my art. Currently, I am working on paintings to overcome some memories by expressing them in artworks.
