Drawing has always played an important role in my life, helping me to express myself since I was a child. Whenever I saw amazing pictures and stories, I always hoped that I could draw such gorgeous things and become a great artist one day.

In my last year at university, I felt I should take an action to change my life direction and give myself a chance to fulfill my dream. Finally, I decided to study children’s book illustration. The course was difficult and I struggled at times, but it really taught me how to tell a good story, develop my skills to draw and most importantly, help me feel more confident in drawing. I’ll keep what I have learned in my mind and keep going forward to create more great works.
