"When I create, I embark on a journey of self-reflection. Each painting begins with a question, and through exploration, grows into a narrative; an abstraction of an aspect of life where the materials, colors, and textures become phrases and chapters describing the journey, not just the ending."I was born in Indonesia and grew up exploring the crowded city of Jakarta, the backwoods of Java island, and later the contrastingly fresh air of Seattle. As a teenager, Salvador Dalí, Mr. Tino Sidin (an Indonesian artist cartoonist), and many design publications from around the world inspired my initial artmaking.I immigrated to the United States to pursue my interest in art and design, studied graphic design and art in Seattle and Art Center College of design in Pasadena. I'm now living in Seattle practicing my work in art and design. In addition to gallery exhibitions, guest speakers to various art courses and numerous private collections in both the United States, Australia, and Asia, my paintings and digital murals can be seen in various locations of the Amazon.com headquarters in Seattle's South Lake Union campus.
