I was so fascinated with the characters of fairy tale I really enjoyed reading during my childhood. Those handsome prince & pretty princess had always drawn me into a world of fantasy where I discovered my favourite costumes of excitement. I was so happy to sketch men & women in style. Today I am still painting people in style. Like woman in red or man in black come alive as the night falls down.
