My love for art started as a young boy. I used to draw and sketch on the back pages of my exercise books while in primary school.

One day, one of my teachers discovered the drawings. I was worried that I would be reprimanded. Instead, the teacher was impressed and asked me to paint backdrops for the drama club. My love for art and painting only deepened from there, but I had to overcome family and personal pressures to fully commit myself to my art. I continue to experiment with new techniques and mediums, but I can’ imagine doing anything else with life.
