Without my family I would not be an artist. My father was a carpenter and when I was a child, I drew pictures, using his carpentry pencils while he worked beside me. He often would show me how to draw simple shapes and animals such as dogs, cats, chickens and other farm animals.
Later, as I grew, I continued to draw and paint with oil on canvas, focusing on family and friends as my subjects. When my parents divorced, I realized the importance of family members affection towards one another. The family became extended, in my mind, to include my friends. This affection for and memory of family and friends became my primary subject as I matured into my artistry.
These paintings reveal this theme and especially the necessity of compassion in order to raise happy children. A child asleep in the arms of his or her parents, is the epitome of this love. Without a family or friends, we are adrift in a sea of anonymity and despair.
I have exhibited my works many times in Thailand and other countries such as USA, Italy, Spain, and have won awards in Thailand such as 1st prize Panasonic Painting Competition, 1st prize UOB Painting Of the Year and UOB Southeast Asia. My painting are in the collections of the following galleries : National Gallery Of Thailand, MOCA Bangkok, Ministry Of Culture Thailand, UOB Bank, KrungThai Bank, National Gallery Singapore.
I recently had a solo exhibition at the Artbridge Chiangrai June 16 – July 15, 2018 and I am going to have a group exhibition at Balai Soedjatmiko Indonesia in August 2018.
