I'm an international trained Interior designer.  I started to leant how to draw, paint when I was 4 years old. After long period being involved in art word, exploring various mediums and techniques to create things. I got very sensitive feeling on color, texture and beauty. It brought me the a sharp eye and mind in space. Later on, I decided to choose interior design as my career to develop. I always influence and inspired by Art and Architecture, sometimes by classic, sometimes by modern. I travelled around world to look, to experience and enrich my memory. 

Six years academic training of interior designer brought me very strong foundation, from the concept development to the construction detail. I can always handle the task comes from work. Years professional experience NYC makes me even stronger.
