Ever since I was a child, I have expressed myself through art or creative writing. Creating art took me into a world of imagination, and the encouragement I received led to further training and explorations.

I don't set out to produce art about one subject or another. I'm never without a sketchbook to hand so I am constantly drawing and sometimes the drawings are left in the sketchbook and other times they develop into more in-depth ideas and detailed images. Everything started with drawing for me. I see it as Art in its simplest form. All it takes is something to draw with and something to draw on.

I didn't set out to be an environmental artist or to create artwork relating to social commentary but as my portfolio developed and people started to review my work, the descriptions started to emerge and I began to notice a pattern I hadn't intended but am now please with.

At school, the only class I really paid any attention in was art. I simply wasn't interested in anything else and I think my obsession with depicting the monotony of the work place and work force started there. As a matter of fact, I can't say that I ever planned my life at all. It has been a combination of accidents that seems to have formed a pattern and a whole. Certainly I don't feel fragmented.

Some of my subject matter is about people's daily routines and a comment on human nature. None of it was intentional - it all developed and evolved over time. People al-ways ask about my style of work but I've never liked to explain a certain piece of work - if you've made a picture and that's how you wanted it to be - hopefully it can speak for itself and whatever it says to the viewer - it's the right message because there isn't a wrong and a right message. Each person takes something a little different from the same picture and I'm happy with that.

As an artist today, I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with both digital and traditional mediums. Digital mediums allow me to work with much more versatility and precision, however I do feel that these conveniences take away from the connection artists have with their work.
Whenever I do work with digital mediums, I find myself 'regressing' my work so as to simulate the imperfections that I came to expect from working with traditional mediums. I feel that the absences of these imperfections gives the work a processed rather than a crafted feel. I find that using the computer as a medium, a tool, and a visual to be endlessly liberating. These individual pieces are intimate portraits that uncover layers of deep sensibilities such as fear, anxiety, longing and self-identity that haunt us all.

Being a woman, young mom, and artist, is extremely challenging. However, having the freedom at least to manifest these emotional states through art is a release, a therapy and a gift. Read Less

I was born in Bandung, 1985. I grew up as a rebellion teenage girl in this quite big city. In16 years old, I left Bandung and started to traveled around Indonesia as a lonely backpacker. From the journey I got all my weird and fun experiences, inspirations and help me to see life from different side. On 2006 I came back to Yogyakarta and found out how this city suit me better than others, then I knew that I belong to this city and decided to stay. On 2007 I got married and started my carrier as a Tattooist which is also part of my dream.

Basically, I’m a self-taught visual artist. Reading, drawing and painting were part of my everyday life as a child. Later I found a growing interest in digital drawing, and eventually came across the world of digital art. The idea of integrating modern technology and traditional media immediately appealed to me.
