In the cold winter at my age 6, my friend aka 'yellow baby chicken' has died of freezing weather overnight. I was tremendously sad, locked myself in my room and protesting by skipping meals. Instead, I decided to draw that baby chicken out of heartache until I fell asleep. After I woke up surrounded by the drawings of my grief, I asked my mum for breakfast.

When I was 12 years old, I drew every day on Microsoft Paint. My dad asked me one day if I can make a logo to put on a business card for my grandma's seafood company. I thought why not, and drew 3 fishes flying around the blue globe. My dad used the logo for more than 10 years. He still forgot to pay me a design fee.

I make art and design until present.
