‘Art is not a technique, it is an expression of the emotions experienced by the artist. -- Leo Tolstoy‘
I was a student cultivated by the traditional education system and a senior student in high school, but it did not affect my pursuit of art.

Hence, art is the best carrier to express one’s emotion, while emotion is also the inspiration of creation.

The final collection <Grandmother> is the most personalized project in my portfolio. The concept of my creation is to cherish the memory of my grandmother who has passed away for ten years, which is also a record of happy memories of my childhood with my grandmother.
