• Mustard

    Mustard, to me, is one of the happiest colours. It is the colour of sunshine, courage, and happiness! I find this colour extremely intriguing, compelling - a breath of fresh air as it emits a youthful and fresh energy. Every time I see mustard, I feel warm and happy.
  • Sun

    There is much beauty when it comes to this glowy celestial being. I see the sun not only as a source of heat and light, but also brightening this world we live in. Whenever I see the sun, I see light, hope, and magic. Also, it somehow looks like an egg yolk to me at times!
  • People

    I am fascinated by the beauty in people and the stories they share. Each and every individual has their own story, their own journey - and this is what makes us who we are, There are so many possibilities in people, so many inspirations! This is why I have a soft spot for portrait embroideries.

  • Beauty in Simplicity

    There is beauty in simple and uncomplicated designs - this is the idea behind 'shibui.' This aesthetic opens our eyes to the beauty of real life, the everyday miracles of nature. I get a sort of profound, unassuming, quiet feeling. It is unobtrusive and unostentatious. I would love to emit this source of comfort with my works, and into your lives.
  • Egg

    Eggs are such a joy! I love the vibrant colour of the yolk - especially when it's a nice bright yet muted shade of yellow - and the egg whites's shape changes almost every time. To me, it also shows the many possibilities of imagination: how the core idea (that is bright yolk) can be framed and presented (by the egg white) in various interesting ways and shapes.
  • Mother Nature

    Look deep into and immerse yourself in nature, and you will understand everything better. A sense of content - that less is more. Nature also a free healing medication: when I head to one of Mother Earth's treasure troves, I feel refreshed and inspired. The sea side especially rejuvenates me.
  • Cat Companions

    I have three cats, named Mandu, Mojji and Bori. They are my best friends - a source of calm and comfort. Just simply watching them gives me cheerfulness! Cats are also symbolic of rebirth and resilences, and give off a sense of mystery and magic. You learn things aplenty from these feline companions.
  • Family

    Family is the most important thing in my life. I'm blessed to be able to grow up in a loving home where we support one another. I could be myself, without any stress and with lots of unconditional love by my parents. My dad, in particular, made me who I am today, and I miss him dearly.
  • Coffee

    I started drinking coffee since I was in college. At the beginning, it used to help me to stay awake as I rushed to complete my assignments. But then I started to really enjoy drinking coffee, and it is now my daily essential. That first sip is a fragrant reminder thata new day of creating is here. Funnily, I don't know how to make coffee - but I love it.
