Just like every other kid in school, I used to draw a lot. I would compete in art competitions at school and doing well encouraged me. I remember drawing Mickey Mouse when I was in Class 2. That was when my passion for art began. As a young boy, art was one of my favourite hobbies. I didn’t need someone to inspire me then but as I grew older, I wanted to learn more. That is when VAST Bhutan came along. In 2014, I met Asha Kama and his family. As time passed, I came to grow fond of his personality and his love for art and humanity. Asha continues to give me great confidence and inspires me to keep doing the best that I can.
