As an artist, my passion lies in animating my static paintings and drawings to bring them to life. I am particularly drawn to animation as a medium due to its flexibility and versatility, even though it requires a significant investment of time. With animation, I am able to explore limitless creative possibilities and convey messages that static art cannot.
My inspiration comes from my own life experiences, as well as the stories of others. By infusing my drawings with meaningful messages and emotions, I aim to create works that resonate with viewers on a personal level.
My latest project, Baby Flow, is a hand-drawn animation that tells the story of a boy named Flow who overcomes his fear of water to provide for himself. Drawing each frame individually has given me complete control over the project’s style and tone, allowing me to prioritize my artistic intuition and test my abilities as a visual storyteller. I hope that this film connects with viewers and conveys the power of facing our fears and overcoming obstacles in pursuit of our goals.
