My love for art originated in my childhood. I remember that when I was very young, I was always looking forward to art classes. I liked to draw all kinds of small animals. Later, I started to copy and hand-draw some illustrations that I liked,  For example, I drew Snow White, as well as Chinese costume characters.  Although I was naive and my drawings unsophisticated, my first illustrations were explorative and done from love. 

Painting is my first hobby, and my second hobby is watching TV.  Once in elementary school and middle school, I was repeatedly punished by the class teacher for secretly painting in the classroom, but I want to thank this teacher. She recommended me to study professional painting. During the college entrance examination, I was a student of art.  I was admitted to university.

In college, I studied animation, illustration, computer software drawing, and I also tried to create illustrations using materials such as stylus, colored graphite, watercolor, oil paints, and so on.  In order to learn more skills, I studied graphic design in the last year of college. During this period, I learned to use a lot of computer software. They are ps, ai, id, ae, an, pr. I really enjoy expressing my ideas through hand-painting and software in any way. I enjoy the whole process. I am fascinated by each project and by the excitement of finally completing each work.  I like to draw portraits of people, capture the personality of the characters, and even the soul, which is what I have always pursued. 

In an era of high speed electronics, I want to stick to the simplicity of hand-painting while using the trendy computer software.
