I was born and grew up in Taiwan. When I was a child, I loved to be close to nature, seeing the trees, flowers, and animals. I began painting since I was a primary school student. I tried to draw what I see and what I imagine and found out that painting made me calm and happy. After getting a master degree in design in the Netherlands, I decided to move back to Taiwan and start my career in illustration since I knew that what I love and I will never get tired of painting. Now every day, I'm happy to use my pen to express myself or help others to convey their thoughts, and I will continue doing this till forever.
