What influences you?
I self-taught myself to draw as a child from reading Japanese manga, notably genre of shōjo manga by Waki Yamato. Looking back, I think I was primarily drawn to her stories that always heroes strong female protagonists while her line imbues gracefulness and vivid details. Whilst my favourite art movement would be the Impressionist Movement, notably Claude Monet. He was ground breaking. His artwork seems to move, capturing the moment's light, through mastery of colours and evocative brushstrokes.
What Motivates you as an Artist?
I am driven by an insatiable appetite to learn and a passion for human centric design that can innately inspire or transform the user/audience. In essence - human stories. In my professional career, it is other's story that I endeavour to convey into visual language. In my own artistic pursuit, I'm pouring out the evanescent from within me into something tangible in whatever medium I felt most appropriate at that moment.
