When did you start and what makes you started?
I started art since I was 6 years old. The reason why I started art is my sister. She isn't really good in art but whenever I saw her art class assignment, I always feel it's beautiful, just by a drawing, it made me feel pumped up and since then I always grab my pencil and have blank papers with me all the time.
Where does your Inspiration comes from?
Originally, I draw whatever comes in my mind, art is free. Identically, mostly my inspiration comes from nature and music. Even thou I am barely step my feet out of my cage, I believe there's always a chance for me to explore the outside world, and I always monitor every little things when I am outdoor. I enjoy hard music like rock and industrial metal. Most of my arts are inspired by strong and melancholic lyrics. By transforming the words into arts, that's how I feel about art.
