I was born and grown up in Indonesia, then moved to USA after married. Now I live in Sayre, PA with my lovely husband. I like drawing since I was a child. I used to work as an architect and interior design for some company but I discovered to continue my hobby in painting. With my husband encouraged, I begin to fulltime as an artist in early 2009. I am a self taught artist in watercolor. I do experiment concerning color to create a real voice of my own. I prefer to realistic artistic styles.
Most my paintings were inspired from my travelling. I try to bring back the travel memories into watercolor paintings. My favorite subject are Bali Island, people and Boats.
