I became attracted to the beauty of colors created by watercolor when I was in an Art preparatory school. I am inspired by works of Andrew Wyeth, and Gary Bukovnik. Although they have very distinctively different use of colors and techniques such as brush strokes, I like to appreciate their different styles to keep my eyes open to see any new styles or techniques that I want to try applying to my works. During the school, I learned the importance of observation and I started to focus on realistic paintings. Also, I love eating, so I tend to choose foods as my subjects to make drawing time more fun. I hope my pieces will bring the viewers appetite.
