I am an illustrator currently residing in Shenzhen, China. After graduating with a major in Landscape Environmental Art & Design from the Shenzhen University in 2013, I realised a career an illustrator was perfectly suited to my strengths and personality.

I have developed a strong personal illustrative style as well as unique observational methods for inspiring my work. I am particularly fond of using twisted lines in my work. I often stay at the bus stations to observe individuals in the crowd because bus stops are magic place where I can be constantly stimulated and inspired by people going about their day-to-day lives. I like spending time at the bus stop because I can be quite anonymous and observe for a longtime without anyone paying attention to me.

I am always looking to challenge myself personally and have a thirst for new and stimulating experiences. I see this as an integral part of my progression as an illustrator and artist.
