Ever since I was little, I have always loved to draw animals, making paper dolls, stuffed animals..., but growing up in a rural area in Viet Nam opportunities for formal training weren't available.
Since I came to the USA, I was so busy with my education, career, family.... I don't have time for any of the hobbies that I love.
In 2008, I decided to buy my first digital SLR camera and took a beginning photography class. Then in 2010, I got a Wacom tablet and learned how to paint with Corel Painter and I fell in love with it.
I consider myself an amateur photographer and artist, I love photography and painting and do it on my free time as a way to relieve stress from my job as a programmer. I love animals and flowers and it reflects in my work. My aim is to capture their unique features / personalities and hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do.
