Hi Khai Li, thank you so much for your time! I’m looking forward to hearing more about your work and your artistic background. Tell us about yourself and what you did before this?
I have more than 13 years of experience in graphic design. I was an art director at an advertising agency.
When did you first start painting? Have you always wanted to be an artist when you were small or did your interest in art develop over time?
I have always been drawn to the arts from a very young age. I didn’t think of being an artist then. When I decided to take the path to become a graphic designer, my tertiary education was how I professionally built my art foundation.
