Drawing and Painting


As an art instructor, I am deeply in love with children's art and creating art with them.

Children possess so much spontaneity, expressiveness, and honesty in their arts. I believe every child has an artist inside them, and my goal is to help them find their artistic voice, trust their ideas and explore possibilities.
