The whole experience of viewing a blank canvas in front of you and exploring the ideas that can be depicted on it, is terribly exciting. The possibilities are immense- with a blank canvas you can let your imagination loose and portray what you want, however you want it.

I have always loved drawing/ painting human figures- I love to capture the contours of the body and expressions of the human face, and depicting my subjects in true oriental splendour. So in terms of discovering the artist within, I knew what I wanted to do since I was very young.
