It’s been four years since I decided that I want to really focus on painting. My dad is an artist and, when I was little, I used to draw with him. Then, I started school and just got interested in learning from him along with his other students. For a long time, I didn't see drawing as a big thing, and I paint rarely. I think I was deliberately avoiding repeating what my dad does. When I was about to graduate from university, thinking what to do next, I realized that drawing randomly really makes me happy – more than doing anything else ¬– and makes me have my own voice. That’s where I step into this field.
