At what age did you start drawing?
I’ve been drawing since a very young age. My parents have drawings of mine from when I was three or four.
What motivates you?
I’m lucky that almost all the projects I get are really enjoyable. For those deadlines that are really tight, I sometimes have to find motivation to persevere and complete them without getting tired. Over the years, I find that listening to podcasts and movies while working really helps me work better. I am often inspired by literature and nature when I create personal work.
What is your favorite form/style of art?
I don’t have one favourite. I appreciate film, music, theatre, cooking, painting, sculpture and literature.
Also why do your like doing artwork for children?
They’re the most honest audiences, and therefore the most difficult ones to please. It’s challenging for me, and therefore I love it.
Please share tips for the very young child artists.
I’m in awe of very young child artists. I hope to learn from their gift. I’m sure they don’t need my tips!
