Drawing has always been the best past time since childhood and my dad was the greatest influence in my art life. I can still recall the day when I was still a toddler, trying to draw a gorilla on my own. Seeing that I couldn't get it right, my dad held me up and put me on his lap, with the gorilla picture on one side, he started to draw without saying a word. In a few strokes, I witnessed a gorilla came to live on the canvas.

My dad is my super hero, my idol, but sadly that was the one and only time that I saw him drawing, he passed away years ago and since then, I never had the luxury to see those magical moments from him. Sometimes I couldn't figure out whether it comes down from the genes or it's from hard work, when I was in primary school, I saw things in not their shapes but in lines. All of my paintings were done based on these lines that I saw, but eventually, I seemed to have lost this gift and could rely my own imagination.


I have a three-year-old black Chinese dog named BATX2, it's named after Batman since it wears Batman's mask as well. She was less than a month's old when I found it abandoned with her 5 siblings in a dumpster on a rainy night. It was difficult to pick only one out of them six as I live in a small apartment. She was the smallest of them all and the two little dots on the top of her eyes, made her look the smartest of them all and that's why I chose her, her siblings were all sent to shelter. Now she's not the soaked and shaking little puppy anymore, she loves to eat and run around all the time, easily timid but very kind at heart and loves to be with everyone she meets. Perhaps I kind of spoiled it and seldom separate from her since I brought her home, she always look a bit anxious and on the edge when I'm not around, with this new job, I can keep her company while I work.
The reason why my drawings are mainly pets: Pets have a shorter lifespan and people seek different ways to memorialize their pets before or after the loss, this ranges from pictures, urns or online headstones. There was this one day a friend of mine was really heartbroken with the loss of her dog. Wanting to make her feel better, I offered to draw a portrait for her dog so she can keep it. The drawing was loved and appreciated and was set as Facebook avatars, cell phone wallpapers, of the whole family! It was not until then I realize this is actually a very meaningful act.

I never see drawing or painting as a profession, until three years ago a magazine asked me to teach drawing in one of their columns. As days go by, more and more chances came knocking at the door. Sometimes I feel that my gift is wasted if I do not draw everyday in this short limited lifetime.
Portraits can capture the best moments of these lovely animals, without having to worry the lighting, settings of the camera while shooting a photo. Besides, these paintings serve best as another nice of art to decorate and furnish your home. Usually I will ask clients to write a few lines of bio or tell me stories about their pets, so that the painting is drawn with the pets' character and portraits their love,and only with love can I come up with a beautiful heartfelt drawing.​​
Now i'm having 4 fur babies in total: BATX2 (dog), P-EGG (dog), Seaweed (cat) and Fatty (cat).
