I developed a deep passion for the arts from an early age. After working as a college instructor teaching IT, I ventured into the world of graphic design. For eight years, I honed my skills as a graphic designer in Singapore, embracing diverse projects and pushing the boundaries of my creativity.
In 2018, I relocated to Tucson with my partner, embarking on a new chapter in my career as a freelance graphic designer specializing in creating captivating book covers for independent publishing authors. I also find immense joy in teaching young minds and sharing my love for art, nurturing their talents and helping them improve their skills.
