Nature is the inspiration for my creative work. And, family is my driving force.
A teaching artist is a person who incorporates one’s artistic capabilities into arts education while continuing artistic activities as an artist.
Four seasons. This is because my practice is constantly in transformation and consistent with the principles of the universe.
My colleagues are the members of my dance company and my fellow teaching artists. Colleagues are the artists I met in college, having the same major, and people who are strength to each other and motivate one another to try something new.
