Born 1992, from Samtse

I have always loved drawing cartoon characters. My father is my inspiration for creating. Watching him draw and use color made me happy. My first drawing was a dragon which I felt so proud of. From then on I created my own world where I could get lost.

When I turned 29 that feeling of excitement faded and the COVID lockdowns made it worse. I was depressed, but Lama Shenphen pulled me out and told me to draw again. So here I am, trying to get into that world of creativity again.
