Artist Statement



I have been painting various objects that I see in nature. And recently, I find myself more interested in portraits. Painting faces of people whom we donít see very often can be one of the ways that we can feel them close by. When Iím painting them, it makes my heart warm and feels like Iím with them at that moment. I want to focus on expressing their personality or mood than likeness by opening up my mind. I push my imagination and ideas to the limit so my thoughts and emotions can be harmonious with them. It is a blessing that all the creative elements of art can bond us together and keep our stories forever.
