My work is about telling stories. Since my childhood story-telling has had a strong influence on me. I grew up listening to my parents’ recorded voice reading children’s stories on a tape in an effort to keep me company while they were away at work. The lack of their presence and having no one to explain the classic children’s question ‘why?’, I began to imagine the reason why. I also began to make keen observations and developed a photographic memory. With my interest in story-telling I was drawn to history as I grew older, which I consider as a type of story-telling. I read about the history of China, Japan and the United States in depth. I began re-creating the historic scenes as well as scenes from daily lives of common people and people in animal forms with my own imagination, wondering what would I have observed, if I were at the scene. The combination of all of the above enables me to project my views and imagination accurately on a surface.
