He began his lifelong love for vivid, abstract imagery as a youngster with a paintbrush in an art class, where the instructor identified him as a young Picasso. 

Most of his artworks are digital art: typography, vector, digital painting, and photo manipulation. Photo manipulation works are design combine his own photos and stock photos from Adobe Stock, istock photos, and Shutterstock.  Addition as a digital artist he make handmade collage by using scrapbooking papers and mixed media materials such as floral, marbles, and others onto hardboard papers and wood panel found in art & craft stores near his home or art studio.  Most of his works take a day or 3 days to completed.

For smaller prints, he print them by himself.
