25 years ago after I graduated from the university in Thailand, where I studied visual communication design, I started my career as an illustrator with a children’s book publisher. My interests in computer graphic design made me stray away from illustration and I started a career in the field of photo editing, website and interactive design. This work experience together with an MA in Multimedia Design from University of Sydney eventually got me a job as an art director at a digital marketing agency and later on as a lecturer at  the  School of Design, in Singapore 

I have always wondered “what if I had not chosen this path but remained in the publishing industry?”. “Where would I have been now and what could I have achieved?” It is about time to find out….I left my computer skills behind, wiped the cobwebs from my rusty hands, picked up a pencil and started drawing again like I did 25 years ago.

WHEN MY MOTHER WAS YOUNG A story of a girl growing up in the 70s, before the digital era. The story is aimed at parents and children who wonder how life was without the technology and the social media we have today.

The characters in the story are based on my childhood and family. Four decades later, everything has changed, left are only faded black and white photos and the misty memories of the way things were back then. By illustrating these memories it allows me to make those bygone days come alive again.

Shampoo, the dog in the story is the very same dog that made appearance in the book " When My Mother was Young". For the record, he is not an immortal dog but he just asked me nicely if he could be in the books. I said yes.

IN MY SKETCHBOOK Most of my stories are based on real life experiences which I found interesting and would like to share . I document these snippets in my sketchbooks. Sometimes, it could simply be a scene in my daily life. Sometimes, I captured the dog that was about to leave this world and made him alive forever in my sketchbook.
