About me

Hello! I am an illustrator in Tokyo. My work are mostly of food and lifestyle creamed with fun & colours. Most of my clients are from FMCG, Food & Beverage industries.

I sometimes travel back to Singapore to conduct public painting and art workshops.

As a kid, I drew more than I talked. (Most probably still am!) I love food, polka dots & stripes, going to IKEA on a weekday, seeing places, reading autobiographies and my 2 lovely cats.

I am always keen in collaborations, and meeting like-minded creatives! :)
