“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
— Edgar Degas
As a photographer and graphic designer, my work is about telling stories.
By blending photography and digital painting, I want to capture moments of humanity and elevate the narratives of everyday people. Pairing photos with bold brushstrokes and vibrant colours allows me to emphasize the faces of strangers and elicit emotion in the viewer.
I fell in love with photography at a young age. Growing up, I remember the privilege and excitement of holding my father’s treasured Asahi Pentax camera. That’s when I learned about the magic of photographs to capture a moment and freeze it in time.
Digital painting allows me to live more deeply in those moments and to transform them into an emotive expression. It makes it possible for me to create something akin to the feeling of recalling a half-forgotten memory or a quickly fading dream.
