"I love them because of its glossy shine effect… After exploring the possibilities of nail varnish on my own nails or paper, I now draw my illustrations on water too! The process of drawing on water is very challenging but exciting, I could ruin my artwork anytime with a wrong stroke!"
She added: "It just feels like making a wishing well and the dream comes true once the artwork is completed. Through this art journey, it motivates me to dare to dream, to always inspire and to be an inspiration for others."
