Anonymous asked: What is the story behind the specific style of your art? Why paint young women? Why use gears as a backdrop?

What is the story behind the specific style of your art? - I used to be a fan of Steampunk. Also, what I am trying to achieve in my paintings is the fusion of soul and machinery. The function of nature or things - the gears and machinery, in some way, state that the whole point or reason why I painted it is still there, confined in the canvas, still going on fresh like it is still happening no matter how many months or years it has been since I finished that piece.

Why paint young women? - I never intend to limit my subjects to young women. I’ve never been to an art school so my knowledge about anatomy is kinda limited. For now, I paint women because I am a woman and it’s easier for me to draw it. Hopefully, in the near future, I’ll be more confident to include more male subjects in my artworks. :)

Why use gears as a backdrop? - I used to be a fan of Steampunk. :)
