It is my process of making art.
In other way, I call it “Art as pooping”

It is like a therapy too. How you talk about your feelings out loud. Making my works are a therapy in a way. I do it for myself, to release bad feeling out and feel better. I often use humor when awkward or uncomfortable. My works show me as an artist, as a person.

My graduation project is to be "Happier, Healthier, Wealthier." By making these works I partly achieve the first two things. Maybe I could also get the third one.

Artist statement

My artworks are the result of my own experience, feelings, and thoughts.
Depression drawings and animal drawings may look different but they came from the same place.
How to interpret them is to the viewers.
Silly, fun, sarcastic, sad, or anything.
It is an open space of my head. Welcome in!


Professional hamster maker. That is a half-joke half-truth. I want to be "Happier, Healthier, Wealthier." being an artist. My ideal goal is to become a full-time artist and also being a happy, healthy person with enough money.

Learned during the studies

I have to do what I enjoy to do! "Do what you like. Love what you do."

Whose Poop Is This?

Another title is “Art as pooping, Art as therapy.”
This book talks about mental illness in the art world and my personal experience.
Being an art kid, growing up as an art student, and having depression. How it is related to what I am doing now. Animal therapy, art therapy.
