I do illustration in picture books, education editorials, and science subjects. Sometimes when I do not have a specific topic, I would like to sketch random objects around me. They could be a tree, a lotus, cherry blossoms, or people in my favorite coffee shop.

My favorite author-illustrators are Jon Klassen, Dr. Seuss, and Qin Leng to name a few.


Mostly, I use watercolors, black ink, and pencils (I tell myself not to buy any more pencils  for now as I've bought way too much.)

One time, I participated in a drawing contest in middle school. I had an awful experience with watercolors, then never imagined that I would ever use them in the future. Vietnamese has an idiom: “You get what you hate most.”

Sometimes, I do experiments with others, such as colored pencils, acrylic, and color inks.
